Volunteers Make a Difference in Saratoga County

By Staff Report | News

Rebuilding Together Saratoga County Volunteer Workdays

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Hundreds of volunteers have helped their neighbors in need throughout Saratoga County this spring.  

For 10 years now, hundreds of volunteers know that spring means partnering  with Rebuilding Together Saratoga County (RTSC) in order to make a difference for homeowners in need.

From a wheelchair ramp in Corinth for a young man who is a quadriplegic,   floor repairs for a disabled couple in Malta, a shower unit for a veteran in Schuylerville and painting and porch repair for an 89-year-old woman in Saratoga, all projects had one thing in common. Neighbors needed a little assistance and friends they didn’t know helped them out.

“When everyone does something, much is able to be done for our community. We are thankful for our many sponsors who donate so we can buy building materials and our hundreds of volunteers who provide the labor and the caring touch for our neighbors in need.  It’s a community event every spring that benefits us all”, says Michelle Larkin, Executive Director of RTSC.

To learn how you can be involved by way of volunteering, donating or applying for help visit the website at www.rtsaratoga.org.
