Mr. Handyman of Los Angeles Supports Children's Miracle Network and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles In an effort to give back to the community, four Mr. Handyman locations in the Los Angeles, California area are partnering to perform nearly 80 hours of repair and maintenance jobs for families in need -- all without collecting a single penny. As part of President Obama's request to renew America through volunteerism, Mr. Handyman, a full-service home repair and maintenance franchise and the No. 1 employer of handymen nationwide, will partner with food banks, children's hospitals and everything in between during their National Day of Service on September 10.
Locally, four Mr. Handyman locations in the Los Angeles area will be donating nearly 80 hours of service to families of children who are being treated for serious illness at the Childrens Hospital Los Angeles. In total, Mr. Handyman will supply 10 technicians and six office staff members to upgrade numerous homes in the Los Angeles area, providing improvements such as accessibility and safety upgrades at their homes, as well as other upgrades to improve their quality of life. "We are always looking for ways to give back to our community, and we are thrilled to be working with Children's Miracle Network and Childrens Hospital Los Angeles," said Ted Tenenbaum, owner of the Mr. Handyman of Los Angeles. "This is our second year working with the patients of Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and their families. Last year's event was so moving for us it left many of our employees, as well as the children and their families, in tears."
Hello Mr. Teddy, Thank you very much for coming out here and Helping all the Children Hospital Los Angeles families. We are very Grateful especially during these difficult times.

Ideally, company executives at the franchise system's national headquarters aim to donate more than 500 hours of work to homeless shelters, hospitals, senior care centers, schools and churches, as well as non-profits and other community service organizations. "Mr. Handyman is an international brand, made up of entrepreneurs who live and work in local communities," said Todd Recknagel, president and chief executive officer of Mr. Handyman, International.
