Wake Up with Rebuild is moving… to Anderson!

July, 26th, 2023

Anderson, SC – Popular awareness event, Wake Up with Rebuild, moves to Anderson, South Carolina

Wake Up with Rebuild is a free networking and awareness event hosted by Rebuild Upstate, a 16-year-old nonprofit that has repaired more than 1,450 homes in Upstate, South Carolina.

Momentum is building for affordable housing solutions, including home preservation throughout the Upstate. The organization has seen particular interest from the Anderson community. Wake Up with Rebuild will be held in Anderson for the first time in organizational history

The awareness event is open to all. Registration is open. We look forward to welcoming community leaders, business leaders, and faith community members as we share about the need for home repair programs in the Upstate, and how you can help. 

The program will include a moderated panel of Anderson leaders. Panelists include:

  • Carol Burdette, President, United Way of Anderson County
  • Michael Cunningham, VP of Community Health Partnerships, AnMed Health
  • Mayor Terence Roberts, Anderson City Council
  • Kathy Hodges, Attorney, Law firm of Kathleen Hodges

Guests who donate as volunteer table hosts are greatly appreciated. All proceeds support Rebuild Upstate’s program and operations in Anderson County. Feel free to contact us with questions about hosting a table. Breakfast will be provided.

Wake Up with Rebuild’s 7-year success in Greenville led to new and strengthened relationships with the business and faith community. It is because of those relationships that Rebuild Upstate is moving forward with a new event, A Toast to Home, to be held on December 8, 2023 in Greenville, SC. A Toast to Home will celebrate key community leaders and the value of investment in home preservation.

The Upstate only prospers when all of the communities in it prosper. Rebuild Upstate, alongside key stakeholders, is committed to ensuring communities have the critical resources they need, like safe homes that people can afford.
