House Captain Profiles: Ryan Donovan and Anthony White
Rebuilding Together Indianapolis appreciates the contributions of our house captains. These volunteers conduct walk-throughs of the nominated homes and work closely with homeowners, volunteer coordinators, and union representatives to plan and manage the execution of critical home repairs. We couldn’t deliver on our mission without their help!
This month, in appreciation of our house captains, we’re featuring Ryan Donovan, Account Manager at ERMCO, Inc., and Anthony White, Project Manager at Pepper Construction.

What’s your favorite part about volunteering for Rebuilding Together Indianapolis? Providing the homeowner with the vision that their home is an asset to their lives. I grew up poor and having a home was not guaranteed for me. I enjoy seeing the smiles on the homeowner's faces during this process. Building a connection with the homeowners is something I cherish with this program.
Please share one of your favorite Rebuilding Together Indianapolis moments. Seeing a granddaughter build a strong relationship with her grandmother by helping her overcome being a hoarder. We assisted their efforts by removing a lot of unnecessary items from the yard and house that caused clutter.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about Rebuilding Together? 2020 was a rough year and it was a blessing to be able to do it in 2021. Having enough tradespeople to volunteer is vital to the performance of the program as a whole. We are depended on as an organization to create a life changing experience for the families we meet.
