NOVA Tribe and Jnet Give Back!

Yesterday about 40 volunteers from NOVA Tribe worked to give a family in Northern Virginia a fresh start.  By working to repaint and do small handyman repairs on a single family home in Annandale, VA, the volunteers made a house into a home.  Yachad matched the group to the single family home owned by Homestretch, a Northern Virginian nonprofit that places families in need into housing.  Not only did NOVA Tribe volunteer their time, they also worked to raise funds to sponsor the project through Yachad’s Mitzvah Party program.

A special thanks to Stacy Miller of NOVA Tribe and Nori White of Jnet,  to all that volunteered (list below), Yachad’s Construction Manager, Robin Renner, and to Homestretch’s staff, Chris Fay and Lauren Padgett.
