Driven by the philosophy that everyone deserves a safe and efficient home, Rebuilding Together Sacramento works to preserve and revitalize the homes of those who may face challenges to performing regular home maintenance or obtaining necessary upgrades, including elderly people, people in low-income communities, and those with disabilities. Along with installing energy-efficient upgrades, the organization provides minor repairs and safety modifications—such as fire detectors, shower stools, and transition ramps—to help ensure that older residents can continue to reside in their homes safely.
Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Los Angeles, where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, the completion of challenges, such as scaling a wall or shooting hoops. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours, and the winning team receives free entry in the Super Dare, a cruise-based take on the Urban Dare concept that features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race are used to help battle breast cancer.
Owners Keri and Ron Mitchell bring more than 14 years of experience with earth-conscious cleaning practices to the arsenal of Green Clean Freaks. During each cleaning and surface restoration, the couples' licensed and insured cleaning technicians scrub furniture and floors with Green Seal?certified products that eschew harsh or abrasive chemicals for eco-friendly ingredients. The team scours rooms from floors to fixtures, flushing out stains with steam-powered equipment, elbow grease, and, when all else fails, the magic word. They shine surfaces in bathrooms, dust blinds in living rooms, and tackle appliances in the kitchen. Crew members also ensure interior windows are spotless and mantels free of dust before packing their equipment in their bottomless carpetbag and flying away via umbrella.
The licensed, bonded, and insured cleaners of Supreme Impressions design custom cleaning plans for each and every client before they scrub down domiciles. Teams vacuum, scrub, dust, and polish their way through rooms, guaranteeing satisfaction for all their sprucing services. Outside of Sacramento, Supreme Impressions' staff travels up to 30 miles to rid homes of dust, odors, and garbage sculptures?no matter how closely they resemble Picasso shoebox guitars.
