Employees of Take Shape For Life and parent company Medifast traded in their spreadsheets for sheetrock this weekend to provide critical home repairs through local partner Rebuilding Together Baltimore.

Rebuilding Together musters volunteers, skilled tradespeople and corporate partners to provide home upgrades and repairs in communities across the country. In addition to serving low-income homeowners, the organization renovates community centers, builds playgrounds, and partners with other organizations working to improve communities. Rebuild Together’s Baltimore affiliate has repaired more than 1,300 homes across the city and county.

On Sept. 25, Take Shape For Life volunteers helped to renovate a property in Baltimore’s Woodburn-McCabe neighborhood, where the retired homeowner settled 20 years ago. They also assisted in beautifying a nearby park and alley. City officials recently selected the neighborhood for targeted revitalization efforts through investment in vacant properties.

“We are honored to support Rebuilding Together’s work to revitalize the Baltimore community and help provide a safer and more comfortable space for a local homeowner,” Medifast Chairman and CEO Michael MacDonald said in a statement. “Our employees are deeply committed to making a positive impact in the communities where we live and work.”
