Rebuilding Together is a nonprofit organization working to preserve affordable home ownership and revitalize communities. The organization’s national initiative “Veterans Housing” was created to meet the growing needs of veterans from past and present wars. They provide home repair services for retired and active service members by increasing the home’s accessibility, enabling veterans to live independently and safely in their own homes. Rebuilding Together will be identifying a specific military veteran in New Jersey whose home was damaged by Hurricane Sandy and helping them rebuild their home.
In July of 2012 the Anthony Fasano Foundation along with dozens of volunteer workers and contractors partnered with Essex County Executive, Joseph N. DiVincenzo to build four brand new bocce courts in Verona Park, which will be the permanent home to the Annual Bocce Bash.
