Rebuilding Together Knoxville – Elijah James’ Home

Elijah James is a sweet three year old with the most severe form of spina bifida, rachischisis. His family and friends banded together to get him a wheelchair, but his house was not accessible with it. An organization called @Rebuilding Together Knoxville has been working with about a dozen construction companies to give Elijah an accessible home. We were so proud and honored to be a part of this effort by assisting with building a much needed ramp from his driveway to his house. The fist bumps we received as he used that ramp melted and stole our hearts. Visit his Facebook page to learn more:

Happy Halloween from CBC

Happy Halloween! It seems there will be many little Elsas and Ninja Turtles this year, but do you know any little trick-or-treaters who will be wearing construction hats and vests with tool belts fastened to their waists?
