Nine Hours of Repairs Services donated to Wingspan Life Resources

To celebrate the Mr. Handyman 2010 National Day of Service and to give back to the community, Mr. Handyman of SW Minneapolis and SW Suburbs will be performing repair and maintenance jobs for a worthy cause in Minneapolis, Minnesota - all without collecting a single penny in labor costs.

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 donate nine hours of free handyman service to the Wingspan Life Resources , a group that provides housing and support for adults with developmental disabilities. Wingspan is located at 2954 Rice Street in St. Paul, Minnesota.

During the National Day of Service, Mr. Handyman will send two skilled technicians to conduct a day's worth of odd jobs on the group's facilities and will also install new windows.

"We are thrilled to be working as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Sylvia Matijasevich, local owner of Mr. Handyman. "We are always looking for ways to give back to our community and we are excited to be a part of a national operation to help organizations in need."

Nationwide, more than 500 hours of free work are being donated on this day from Mr. Handyman businesses. Skilled technicians are giving their time 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. "We hope to come together as a group and make a large-scale impact on a single day."
