Volunteers to shut down entire block for rehab work to houses

(KMOV) -- An entire block in north St. Louis will be shut down... so that volunteers can rehab the street.

About 300 volunteers are expected to show up shortly after sunrise at the 4400 block of Clarence. It's all part of "Rebuilding Together," and they'll be repairing seven homes on the block. The idea is to bring the neighborhood up, block by block.

Six homes were rehabbed last year with federal block grant money. This year, it will be up to 70.

Organizers said the Penrose and O'Fallon neighborhoods will be available for historic tax credits, which is expected to spark investment.

Rebuilding Together is a non-profit group that rehabilitates houses for veterans, the disabled and low income families.

You can contact Rebuilding Together at (314) 918-9918 ext. 23.
