WASHINGTON, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In the final episode of this 19 part web series, Melanie and Maria look back on their months volunteering to rebuild Sandy-affected homes with national non-profit Rebuilding Together. As Rebuilding Together marks its 250th Sandy recovery project, Melanie and Maria reflect on the work they've done, the stories they've heard, the people they've met, and the organizations they've come to know during their time as volunteers. They look back at what's already been accomplished and take a look forward to the work that still needs to be done.
