More than 200 volunteers gathered Saturday to assist with exterior home repairs in the Highland Park area.

The event, dubbed REHABARAMA, included refreshing paint, repairing porches and windows, and addressing significant maintenance items.

"Twenty homeowners will receive much-needed assistance with exterior home repairs along the 1100 and 1200 blocks of E. Highland Blvd.," said Shanon Miller, OHP director. "In the spirit of neighborhood revitalization, REHABARAMA focuses on hands-on preservation of historic resources and serves as an educational tool for those interested in the preservation trades."

The City's Office of Historic Preservation says San Antonio has a lot of aging buildings and thousands of low to moderate income households that need help with simple repair and maintenance.

Volunteers included students from UTSA, Joint Base San Antonio, San Antonio Water System, Security Service Federal Credit Union, and the City of San Antonio, according to a news release.
