HLK Joins Rebuilding Together – St. Louis on Fox 2 News
April 27, 2015
HLK partner Bill Hughes joined Dave Ervin, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together – St. Louis, on KPLR 11 and Fox 2 News Friday afternoon to share some insights into the agency's work on rebuildingtogether-stl.org.
Hughes says collaborating on the website redesign, which aims to appeal to volunteers, donors, and homeowners in need, was an easy decision.
"HLK and our employees have been volunteering with Rebuilding Together – St. Louis for years, so we've seen firsthand the commitment and passion this organization has for the St. Louis community and its homeowners."
The site utilizes documentary-style photography and videography to measure the organization's impact on the St. Louis-area communities it serves, with a design inspired by the staff, volunteers and homeowners it helps.
Of particular note is a documentary video the agency created in collaboration with Fedele Studios and 90 Degrees West, which follows a Rebuilding Together client, Matt, through his home repairs.
"The video puts into perspective just how much Rebuilding Together as an organization and its volunteers are able to impact these homeowners' lives and community," says Hughes.
The segment aired in advance of Rebuilding Together's annual Rebuilding Day, coming up on May 2.
"Hundreds of volunteers spend the day at homes across the St. Louis area helping to repair and fix homes. This year we have almost 50 houses we're working on," says Ervin.
