Rodeway Inn & Rebuilding Together Team Up for 4th Annual Rebuilding Dreams Project on October 29
For the 4th consecutive year, Rodeway Inn® franchisees are teaming up again with Rebuilding Together, the signature cause partner of Choice Hotels International, Inc. for the Rebuilding Dreams project.
Rebuilding Together is the largest non-profit organization in the country that focuses on preserving affordable housing and rehabilitating the homes of low-income homeowners and non-profits nationwide. This year, deserving homeowner, Serafina, from Monrovia, California, has been awarded the opportunity to have her home rehabilitated by volunteers from Rodeway Inn hotels on October 29, 2013, in honor of national “Make a Difference Day.” Serafina has lived in this same home for over 38 years, and hopes to live here as long as she can—Rodeway Inn volunteers and Rebuilding Together are here to help her fulfill this dream.
Choice is also honored to be given the opportunity to team up with DCTV Duarte, a non-profit organization that gives children a chance to get behind the camera and get real-life experience in video production. These children helped produce a special video interview with this year’s Rebuilding Dreams project recipient, Serafina. Check it out below!
As Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz said, “There’s no place like home,”—and we agree with this statement, but we also believe everyone deserves a home that is livable, efficient and safe. When her house was first surveyed for work, we discovered that not only was Serafina’s heat not working, but there were also a number of items inside the house that could cause some safety concerns—all of which she had no money to repair or have replaced. On top of money setbacks, Serafina also suffers from chronic knee problems, causing many obstacles in her day-to-day life. Even through all of this, Serafina continues to glow with her happy demeanor and is always grateful for all that she has been given in life. Rodeway Inn and Rebuilding Together are delighted and excited to be helping rehabilitate the home of such a deserving recipient.
