Ranken students, alumni and staff participated in Rebuilding Together (RT) working to upgrade a home on Euclid just West of the Ranken campus. Led by alumnus, Nick Wiltse (INT 2011) 30 volunteers painted, trimmed, cleaned and installed cabinets for two elderly women who met the guidelines for the Rebuilding Together project.
Joining Team Ranken were members of a Christian fraternity fellowship group who assisted with a home in South City. Members of each group worked to fulfill scholarship and grant service hours or out of kindness to others. Through corporate sponsorship and private donations, 50 homes requiring over 1,200 volunteers were serviced in the St. Louis area. RT will hold two more service days in July and September.
Thanks to all the volunteers who gave up their Saturday to help in this project. We hope you will join us again next year!
