A local veteran’s house was rehabbed on Oct. 10 by volunteers and Jamaica Plain-based Rebuilding Together Boston as part of a nationwide program.

The Sigourney Street home of the U.S. Marine Reserves veteran of Vietnam was rehabbed as part of the Heroes at Home program of the national Rebuilding Together organization. Since 2007, Heroes at Home has rehabbed the houses of veterans in need, as well as community centers, in an effort to improve the lives of military families.

Volunteers from Sears Holdings, the New England Patriots pro football team and Kraft Holdings joined in the JP rehab. Volunteers included former Patriots star Andre Tippett.

Rebuilding Together Boston provides free home rehab to all types of residents in need. For more information, see rebuildingtogetherboston.org.
