2023 Project Days Are Set!
dody's Day is Saturday, October 7th.
Rebuilding Together Greater Burlington is holding its second annual Dody’s Day on 10/7/23. This annual fall project day pays tribute to long-time board member and volunteer, Dody Fraher-Ruland. Dody’s friends and business associates funded the event and are excited to invite you to follow Dody’s lead by helping a neighbor with home repairs.
