Mr. Handyman National Day of Service September 9th, 2011

As part of the National Day of Service , technicians from Mr. Handyman of Los Angeles will perform 64 - 80 hours of repair and maintenance jobs on Sept. 9, all without a collecting a single penny in labor costs.

Mr. Handyman of Los Angeles is partnering with Children's Hospital Los Angeles , for its third consecutive year, to perform household installation and upgrade projects to families of admitted children. Six to eight teams of technicians will be deployed throughout the Los Angeles area providing multiple households with fixing electrical outlets , installing safety fixtures to allow patients better mobility, building railings on stairs and sealing windows in preparation for winter and a dozen more.

The project is an example of a national effort through Mr. Handyman, where technicians from Los Angeles to Washington D.C., have organized local repair projects that will all take place Sept. 9 for children's hospitals, domestic violence shelters, homes of military veterans, and other groups in need across the country.

"We are thrilled to be working with Childrens Hospital Los Angeles as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Ted Tenenbaum, owner of the Mr. Handyman of Los Angeles. "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."

The National Day of Service and Remembrance was established in 2009 as a way to encourage Americans to participate in service and remembrance activities on the 9/11 anniversary. This year, more than 1 million Americans are expected to serve in their communities in honor of 9/11, according to United We Serve , a national organization that rallies behind the cause. The day is part of President Obama's request to renew America through volunteerism.
