Rebuilding Together Hartford is an organization that brings local volunteers to help elderly Hartford residents with chores and general home upkeep. Around 50 volunteers in 4 Hartford neighborhoods did yard work and fix-ups for residents such as 81-year-old Leomie White, whose diabetes gets in the way of her ability to completely manage her house and yard.
