Around 1,000 volunteers with Rebuilding Together Springfield will help with the group's largest renovation ever.
The organization's 21st annual Green and Fit Neighborhood Cluster Rebuild effort will renovate 25 homes in the Old Hill neighborhood.
A majority of these renovations will be energy efficient, which will help improve the quality of life for residents.
"There are things in the house that we needed to get done and we couldn't do, and they came knocking on the door and telling us about the program. We were just so excited and for our neighbors, too. To have the whole street done like this, you never saw anything like this before," said Carol Granado, one of the recipients of a home renovation.
These renovations will start and finish on Apr. 27, which is National Rebuilding Day.
