Corporations Showing Generosity and Support in the Face of Enormous Obstacles
REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES – 04/24/2009 – On Saturday, April 25, 2009, nearly 3,000 volunteers from corporations and service organizations around the Bay Area will heed the President’s call to service by stepping out to renovate and rehabilitate homes and community facilities for neighbors in need throughout San Mateo and northern Santa Clara County.
Los Altos- based Rambus will lead the way working with Rebuilding Together Peninsula to ensure that neighbors in need can live in safety, warmth and independence during this challenging economic time by providing free repair services that would otherwise be unaffordable.
Rambus will be bringing roughly 70 volunteers to help renovate a single family home to create a safe, protected environment for the family in need of help. The work includes both interior and exterior renovations.
“For the past 8 years, Rebuilding Together has been an ideal way for Rambus employees to not only give back to their community, but also have fun,” said Satish Rishi, executive champion of Rebuilding Together at Rambus. “It’s always exciting to see the finished product, and rewarding to know we are helping to provide this family with a safe and protected environment.”
As part of Rebuilding Together Peninsula’s National Rebuilding Day, this project will restore and revitalize not only a home but hope and community pride as well.
Please join Rambus volunteers, community leaders and Rebuilding Together Peninsula at the ground breaking of this project on Saturday, April 25 at 8:00am, located at 908 Hiller Avenue, Belmont, CA -photo and interview opportunities available throughout the day.
