Adventist HealthCare Employees Renew Home in Community

By Cindy Glass

Sixty-seven Adventist HealthCare employees and friends contributed their time to the Rebuilding Together project held in Rockville, Md. The annual event was an opportunity to address the needs of low-income homeowners—primarily the elderly, disabled, and families with children—in the community.

Rebuilding Together is part of the mission of Adventist HealthCare, based in Rockville, Md., to “demonstrate God’s care by improving the health of people and communities through a ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing.”

This year’s volunteers helped to rebuild a front porch and stairs, replace kitchen cabinets and countertops, install new bathroom fixtures, and paint an entire house, inside and out. The project took place in the historic Rockville area of Lincoln Park and renewed the home and heart of Mrs. “H,” whose family was one of the original settlers of that area during the 1890s.

Mike Rand, the Rebuilding Together coordinator, has been involved with these projects for the past seven years. “It's really rewarding to see everyone come together to lend a hand to those in our community who are in need,” Rand said. “I appreciate every single person who comes out and shows what Adventist HealthCare is all about.”
