Broward Homes to Receive Free Repair Thanks to Deerfield Beach-Based People's Trust

by People's Trust Insurance | May 02, 2016

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. – In celebration of national Rebuilding Day on April 30, People's Trust Insurance Company and its affiliate, Rapid Response Team, joined forces with the Rebuilding Together Broward organization to help make critical home improvements and provide safe and sanitary living conditions to homes of those most in need.   


Rebuilding Together Broward is a nonprofit organization that provides home repair assistance to low-income, elderly and veteran homeowners in Broward County, Wilton Manors, Pompano Beach, Hollywood, Pembroke Pines and Miramar.


"It's very important to People's Trust that we are engaged in helping our community know the comforts of safe and secure homes," said Brooke Gold, Director of Corporate Relations. "It's a true honor to continue our partnership with Rebuilding Together Broward and share our home repair resources and expertise with those who need a helping hand."


This April will mark the second year that People's Trust and Rapid Response Team have participated in Rebuilding Together Broward. Last year, Rapid Response Team Roofing, a division of Rapid Response Team, worked with Rebuilding Together Broward to completely re-roof the home of Fort Lauderdale resident Alfreda Echols, free of charge.


This year, People's Trust and Rapid Response set their sights even higher for National Rebuilding Day. More than 25 employees came out and donated their time and skills to the Griffin household of Fort Lauderdale. Major improvements included replacing all kitchen cabinetry, helping fix plumbing issues, building a shed to house the water heater, landscaping, painting and several other major repairs.


People's Trust CEO George Schaeffer attended the event and said, "It's amazing what a transformation and difference we can make in the lives of people who need it the most when we get together as a community."
