MINNEAPOLIS — Volunteers skilled in home-upgrade work including painting, landscaping, cleaning and light carpentry are needed for “Rebuilding Days” on Sept. 10, 24 in Nobles and Cottonwood counties.

The volunteer work will allow low income, seniors and veterans in need in Worthington and Mountain Lake to live more safely and comfortably in their own homes. Rebuilding Together Minnesota established an office in Windom in early 2021 to serve local communities with needed home upgrades to improve their quality of life.

Project day details are as follows:

Sept. 10: 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Nobles County “Rebuilding Day.” Meet at the Centennial Park Shelter in Worthington at 7:30 a.m.

Sept. 24: 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Cottonwood County “Rebuilding Day.” Meet at the City Park Picnic Pavilion in Mountain Lake at 7:30 a.m.


To volunteer in Worthington, email gpthuringer@gmail.com or call 507-200-2015 by Aug. 21. To volunteer in Mountain Lake, email sharlett9@gmail.com or call 507-200-2015 by Aug. 21.

Walk-up help is accepted but registering is preferred. A free breakfast for volunteers will be provided at the start of both project days.

“We’re dumbfounded,” said Mark Loosbrock, secretary/treasurer of Lismore Cooperative Telephone Company, which spearheaded the project. “They had maps that our engineers, that nobody had. That’s why that money got denied.”
The deadline to apply is 5 p.m. Oct. 14.
For incidents recorded the evening of Sept. 30 through the early morning of Oct. 4.
