Southfield (CW50) – Life Remodeled was founded in 2010 by Chris Lambert and his friends with the goal to build new houses and large-scale neighborhoods in the Detroit area.
What started as a group of 500 volunteers building a house in 6 days for a family, has grown in to 10,000 volunteers building neighborhoods, cleaning streets, and renovating homes and schools during their 6-day project each year.READ MORE: Michigan Reports 7,733 New COVID-19 Cases, 35 Deaths
This year however, due to the ongoing pandemic, Life Remodeled is continuing their annual project but with a reduced volunteer capacity of 5,000 volunteers. This will help maintain required social distancing, as well as ensuring the health and safety of all volunteers.READ MORE: Fall Hayrides Begin Oct. 1 At Heritage Park In Farmington Hills
