Contractors Needed for Rebuilding Together - April 30, 2022

Call for Volunteers for annual Rebuild Day (Christmas in April)


Powering Chicago, the IBEW 134 / NECA Chicago joint labor management committee working together to promote a stronger union electrical construction industry, is extending an invitation to you to partner with them in the annual Rebuild Together event on Saturday, April 30th, 2022.

Rebuild Together, formerly Christmas in April, is a day of service which provides minor to moderate electrical repairs in communities that would otherwise go neglected. We are asking for our Contractors to assist this year by providing service vans, trucks and tools to help assist in making this 2022 campaign a successful Rebuild Together.

Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago has had an extremely positive effect within the communities our IBEW members and union electrical contractors have assisted in years past and because of the challenges these communities have had to endure, this year’s assistance will be that much more impactful. This will be the first Rebuild Together where in-home work will be provided since the start of the pandemic.

Our industry’s role in assisting Rebuilding Together Metro Chicago is to provide our talents in keeping the residents comfortable and safe. Because of the fragility of the homeowners identified this year, Rebuild is requesting that all who enter the home and have potential to interact with the home owners be vaccinated. This poses certain logistical challenges , however will not turn away any volunteers. There is always work that can be done by all who have a willing heart to help.

Powering Chicago, again, requests your assistance in the donation of your time and resources to make this a truly successful event. “Thank you” in advance of your help.



City location: Englewood - meet at Chicago Park District, Lindblom Park (7am)

Suburban location: Chicago Heights - Marion Catholic High School

Please contact Elbert Walters III, Executive Director of Powering Chicago for details on how you can have a positive impact on helping rebuild Chicago, together.
