Making a Difference, One House at a Time
 

 
After water and food, there is no greater physical need than shelter.
 
Sadly, there are those among us who fear the rain, because the water will come through a leaking roof and damage ceilings and floors, eventually rotting the structure that is supposed to keep them warm and dry. There are those in terror of stairs that injured or debilitated limbs can no longer negotiate, and so must remain prisoners in their homes. There are those among us who have difficulty bathing, using the toilet or grasping a door knob, routines to which most of us give no thought. Getting by on less than median income, some of our neighbors are unable to pay for rehab and repairs and so must live in discomfort and fear in their own homes.

Twenty two years ago, Christmas in April was founded as a non-profit to gather resources offered by caring citizens and corporations, organize groups with varied skills and mobilize them to go out into the community to improve the living conditions of neighbors in need. Now called Rebuilding Together Inc., the organization continues the mission, sending out millions of dollars in materials and thousands of volunteers dedicated to giving back to our community. D.G. Liu Contractor Inc. and many trade associates have volunteered labor and contributed money to support the work of Rebuilding Together for twenty two years.
If you feel the volunteer spirit, consider Rebuilding Together. There are chapters throughout the country. Your support can be financial or hands on. Volunteering will make you feel good.

—Jerry Liu, President, DGL

Rebuilding Together, formerly known as Christmas in April, provides free repairs to homeowners in need—usually the elderly and disabled. The group’s mission is to make homes warm, safe, and sanitary for occupants. Montgomery County’s chapter of RT repairs 50 to 60 houses each year.

Jerry Liu has served as a house captain with RT for more than 20 years, and many loyal DGL employees volunteer time and skills as well. “Jerry is one of our strongest supporters,” said Susan Hawfield, executive director of the Montgomery County chapter. “He feels it’s the duty of the remodeling industry to give back to the community, and he certainly demonstrates that. This year’s challenge was huge. This house is now completely insulated, windows have been replaced, and it’s sealed properly. DG Liu has done amazing work. We can’t be prouder to have someone like Jerry on this project.”
