Mr and Mrs C

‎"What a great group of people!" quipped Mrs C after volunteers wrapped up replacing the roof on the garage of she and her husband's east side residence. "The work you do is so appreciated!" 

Mr and Mrs C are longtime local legends for their commitment to community service on the school board, commemorated by a park and elementary school named in their honor. After over 60 years in their home, Mr and Mrs C watched their two sons (now Army veterans living in Colorado) grow up in a city of change, degeneration, and regrowth. Despite this, their commitment to their community has never ceased, and they continue to share their enthusiasm for life with their neighors and church.

Join Rebuilding Together Aurora this April and support our longtime neighbors restore the homes and communinities they love.
