Snow melt reveals damage

May 3, 2023 | Communities

By Tim Clarke – Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities

It seems a little like Alice down the rabbit hole these days as we emerge from the snow and see and hear of the damages. We’re able to joke about some of these things just a little bit now as we face new living circumstances and repair costs under a sunny sky.

One casualty is the traditional date of Rebuilding Day. This year the board of directors of Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities has postponed the event to June 24.  It was felt this would give our mountain contractors more time to take care of storm damage repairs in the community.

Some can overcome the damage to their property out of their own funds or FEMA low-interest loans. However, there are those who don’t know what to do and have increasing anxiety about their outlook.

To those who own their homes but are of low income, we want to help with minor home repairs. We hope to get more donations and grants to cover the costs of those needs and help more neighbors on an emergency repair basis.

Now that the snow is melting and the new date has been set for Rebuilding Day, it’s time to get out your calendars, circle June 24 and start signing up as a community volunteer. Visit to sign up, call us at (909) 336-3910 or contact us at Rebuilding Together Mountain Communities, P.O. Box 3540, Blue Jay, CA 92317.
