CAMPAIGN: Rebuilding Together's Tradesperson of the Year Award

CONTENT: Multimedia with summary

The 2013 Rebuilding Together Tradesperson of the Year, Mark Egner of Frank & Sons Construction, has been involved with Rebuilding Together’s South Sound affiliate for more than ten years, acting as construction manager and averaging 100 to 150 pre-project home visits per year. He also serves as a “house captain” on rebuilding days and is a year-round volunteer. He traveled to New Orleans as part of Rebuilding Together’s 50 for 5 event in 2010, where volunteers from more than 60 Rebuilding Together affiliates around the country came to work on 50 hurricane-damaged homes on the fifth anniversary of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Egner also spent a week in New York City recently, aiding Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts.
