DALLAS, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas-Based Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants is sponsoring Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas on April 28 by supplying lunch for all volunteers and also providing company volunteers to help with the rebuild effort. The volunteer building event is part of April's National Rebuilding Month.
"The Dickey's family and our restaurants have had our roots in the Dallas area since 1941 and we are thrilled to be a part of this important event that makes such a positive effect on area families," said Roland Dickey, Jr., President of Dickey's Barbecue Restaurants, Inc. "Making Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas a success takes the talents of many and we applaud their volunteer efforts."
Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas is providing free home repairs for low-income families, including local veterans and disabled adults. More than 200 volunteers are revitalizing 12 homes and refurbishing a new "Safe Home" for battered women and children on a full block on Starks Avenue in Dallas.
"At Rebuilding Together, our goal is to rebuild homes in the Dallas community and have a life-changing impact on families in need," said Maggie Brodnax, executive director of Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas. "Without sponsors like Dickey's Barbecue, we could never realize that vision. We are thankful to Dickey's for their ongoing support of our organization and for serving as an instrumental sponsor for National Rebuild Day."
A variety of organizations from across Dallas-Fort Worth have pooled their efforts to assist in home repairs for Rebuilding Together Greater Dallas. As a thank you to the community and volunteers for their efforts, Dickeys Barbecue has offered up its smokin' barbecue and sides.
