Rebuilding Together and Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. Form National Partnership to Help Homeowners in Need with Home Repairs and Essential Items

By   /  

This year, Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. will support more than 25 projects across the country, allowing neighbors across the country to receive quality critical home repairs at no cost and remain safe and healthy in their homes.

Volunteers for the project will be Associates from the company’s retail banners Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, Harmon Face Values, and Decorist.

“We believe now more than ever that creating a sense of home is critical for the well-being of both individuals and the communities we serve,” said Mark Tritton, President, and CEO of Bed Bath & Beyond Inc.

“By joining forces with Rebuilding Together to invest in revitalizing homes across the country, we can support homeowners in need and enable our Associates to create an impact where they live and work.”

Lucy, a retired school bus driver who shares her 160-year-old home with six family members and is in desperate need of repairs, and Kelly, a schoolteacher who is the sole caregiver for her husband, mother, and two adult children, are among those receiving repairs.

Roof repairs for Lucy and a new refrigerator for Kelly, who needs to store insulin to meet her husband’s health needs, will be highlights of the repairs.

“Rebuilding Together’s mission to repair homes and revitalize communities is more critical than ever before as the nation faces a devastating housing crisis,” said Caroline Blakely, president, and CEO of Rebuilding Together.

“We’re incredibly grateful to Bed Bath & Beyond Inc. for their partnership and look forward to making a difference together in New Jersey and nationwide.”

Rebuilding Together and its affiliates have over 30 years of experience helping neighbors in need age safely in place, live independently, preserve generational wealth, and stay in the communities they love. The repairs are provided at no cost to neighbors who frequently face limited resources.

Deferred home maintenance can lead to significant potential health hazards, such as the risk of injury from falling, as well as crumbling foundations, sagging roofs, and unsecure windows and doors over time.
