Last weekend, the Epstein Community Foundation (ECF), a not-for-profit charity formed by Epstein employees, participated in an event with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, a nationwide organization dedicated to providing critical home repairs, modifications and improvements for residents in need.
This year, the ECF helped to upgrade a residence for a family in need, ultimately making it a much safer home for them to live in.
The scope of work featured repairs and renovations to the front room, dining room, bathroom, kitchen, stairwell, basement and exterior.
Some of our projects included:
- Renovating the bathroom
- Building a new wall in the basement
- Replacing all baseboards
- Installing new railings on exterior stairs
- Painting walls
- Reinforcing interior stairs
Our team worked through the horrible weather, in very cramped spaces to pull off a miracle, said Criss Paccione-Anderson, Epsteins Senior Vice President. We are beyond proud of the accomplishments achieved!
Collectively, Rebuilding Together affiliated have completed for on more than 100,000 homes and engaged 3.4 million volunteers to deliver $1.3 billion in market value since its founding in 1988.
Epstein would like to thank the efforts of all the volunteers who participated, including our team captains: Olivia Corcoran, Deion DeBose, Andy Valinskas and Will Ernst. They all worked extremely hard over the last few months to ensure the project was a success.
Until next year!
The ECF, founded in 2008, is devoted to empowering people to improve their lives through a commitment to developing partnerships with communities in need. Over the years, the ECF has been involved in numerous charitable partnerships and collaborations with organizations similar to Rebuilding Together, such as Open Cooks and Chicago Public Schools.
