The Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) joined forces with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago for National Rebuilding Day on Saturday, April 29, 2023. This annual event brought together community leaders, trade unions, service clubs, companies, and volunteers to repair and improve homes and neighborhoods in communities across Chicagoland. Chicago’s Mayor-Elect, Brandon Johnson kicked off the event in the Englewood neighborhood. At the same time, Blue Island Mayor Fred Bilotto started things in Blue Island, IL, where more than 1,500 volunteers partnered with the community to repair and improve 75 homes.
For ECA, this partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago is an opportunity to give back to the community by sharing their skills and expertise. As electrical contractors, they understand the importance of safe and reliable electrical systems in homes and communities. By working with Rebuilding Together, ECA members helped ensure that local residents can continue living in warmth, safety, and independence.
National Rebuilding Day is an important event that brings together people from all walks of life to make a positive difference in their communities. By mobilizing volunteers to repair and improve homes, Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago is helping to create safer, more vibrant neighborhoods where residents can thrive. ECA is proud to be a part of this effort and looks forward to continuing its partnership with Rebuilding Together in the years to come.
Through the partnership with Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago, our electrical contractors are helping to make a difference in the lives of many Chicagoans. By volunteering their time and expertise, they demonstrate their commitment to the community and their dedication to improving the quality of life for all.
