Rebuilding Together - Portage President Tom Crnarich is with his grandson, Ryan at the ceremony honoring senior volunteers. Ryan gave a heartfelt speech honoring the work Tom has been doing for Rebuilding Together - Portage for over 20 years!
The ceremony was held at the Porter County Fairgrounds. Ryan has also been right beside his grandpa for most of those years helping with as much as possible. We are all very proud of you both! We are very proud of all the work you and so many others do so tirelessly. Your consistent and persistent nature is what gets things done! Thank you!
