Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange Receives Repair Services from Dallas Area Mr. Handyman Owners

To celebrate the Mr. Handyman 2010 National Day of Service and to give back to the community, Mr. Handyman of Northeast Tarrant County will be performing repair and maintenance jobs for worthy causes in Grapevine, TX -- 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 repair drywall , hang storm doors and do everything in between during their National Day of Service on Sept. 10.

Locally, Mr. Handyman of Northeast Tarrant County will be donating six Mr. Handyman technicians to fix water leaks, install air conditioning units, replace storm doors and work on other projects for the Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange. Mr. Handyman of Northeast Tarrant County has partnered with neighboring franchise owners Mike and Susan Riley as well as Mariam and Kevin Morris, in order to combine their restoration efforts for GRACE.

"We are thrilled to be working with the Grapevine Relief and Community Exchange as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Mark Bush, owner of the Mr. Handyman of Northeast Tarrant County. "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."

More than 300 U.S. and Canadian locations will rally around the cause and donate their skilled technicians' time to a local charity of choice. Ideally, company executives at the franchise system's national headquarters aim to donate more than 300 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. "We hope to come together as a group and make a large-scale impact on a single day."
