INDIANAPOLIS -- Houses in the Twin Aire neighborhood on the southeast side got a face lift over the weekend thanks to Rebuilding Together Indianapolis.

More than 200 volunteers stepped up to help work on 10 houses throughout the day.

The team worked on everything from electrical projects to landscaping.

One Twin Aire resident said she was overjoyed – and that she couldn’t have done any of the repairs on her own.

“You’re worried about being elderly. You’re worried about being taken advantage of and whatnot,” Yvonne Kirk said. “They come in and just… it means a whole lot. I can’t even probably put it to words how overjoyed I am.”

Rebuilding Together Indianapolis says the money it raised this year will allow it to invest half-a-million dollars back into the homes in the Twin Aire neighborhood.
