Be a Tool Day of Service @ Hillside Community Church
Sep 7 @ 8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Be a tool logoGolden will be bustling with volunteers armed with paint brushes, hammers, and other home improvement tools for this year’s annual Be a Tool Neighborhood Rehab Project (NRP) on September 7!

Since 2011, the NRP has enlisted kind-hearted neighbors to help homeowners make improvements to their homes to keep them warm, dry, and safe. The program was started in Golden, but has since spread to also include Arvada, Englewood, and Idaho Springs.

Using an innovative model of community support and volunteers, over 734 homes have been improved since the program began.

22,483 volunteer hours were donated which resulted in labor savings of more than $525,000. Yet to the homeowners who benefit from the program, the help is priceless.

Find out more about this project and how you can help at www.beatool.org.
