Rebuilding Together, MLK Day and AmeriCorps, Oklahoma City, OK
Members of the Rebuilding Together AmeriCorps program, CapacityCorps, dedicated the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service to rebuilding homes and revitalizing communities in Oklahoma City.
Sixty-two AmeriCorps members came together from 20 different states to perform critical home repair services for veteran and senior citizen home owners in need. Rebuilding Together AmeriCorps members serving a collective 3,000 hours repaired nine homes with the help of area high school students and community members in the Carverdale-Edwards-South Creston Hills triangle area in Oklahoma City.
