SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Apr 24, 2014) - Stratos Product Development today announced that it will participate as the top sponsor of Rebuilding Together Seattle's Spring Rebuilding Day on April 26, 2014. This marks the 3rd year that Stratos volunteers have participated in this nationwide event.
Stratos staff, along with the help of Exxel Pacific, will restore the home of Ernesto, a Polio survivor who lives with his wife, adult developmentally-disabled daughter, and high-school-age son (4427 S Graham St, Seattle, WA 98118). Ernesto is in a wheel chair but has been living without a ramp for the last few years, unable to get in and out of his home. Volunteers will be building a ramp and repairing the front porch, installing new kitchen appliances, patching their leaky roof and repairing past water damage, and removing graffiti from their front fence.
"I am glad that Stratos has once again partnered with Rebuilding Together Seattle," Christine Glaister, Stratos Quality Engineer and Rebuilding Together Project Lead said. "It's important for us to be good corporate citizens and contribute to our local community. This project is an exciting opportunity for the Stratos team to work together on a project that will have a major positive impact for a wonderful family."
