Rebuilding Together Spokane will partner with Gonzaga University on April 13th and 16th to continue a longstanding effort to preserve and revitalize the Logan neighborhood.  Approximately 250 volunteers will conduct a home improvement blitz to help low-income or elderly homeowners in need. 

Gonzaga Trustees and Regents will kick-off the effort, working from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. on April 13th, as part of their spring meeting. They will prepare and paint a home at 1204 E. Ermina Ave.

Then, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Saturday, April 16th, volunteers from Rebuilding Together Spokane (RTS) will collaborate with Gonzaga students, parents, alumni and Logan residents to improve several homes in the neighborhood. The students, of which approximately 120 are expected to participate, are part of the campus organization, April’s Angels.  This marks the 17th consecutive year April’s Angels will have performed a full day of work in April assisting others.

“This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to witness the community truly come together to complete tangible transformations,” said Gonzaga student Whitney McKelvey, an RTS volunteer. Sponsors of the April 16th effort include: First Presbyterian, Providence Hospital, Inland Northwest Heath Services, Pepsi, Honeywell, Albertsons, Bank of America, and FLSmidth.
