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

As part of the National Day of Service, technicians from Mr. Handyman of N. LaPorte, Porter Counties and New Buffalo will perform 16 hours of repair and maintenance jobs on Sept. 9, all without a collecting a single penny in labor costs.

Mr. Handyman is supporting the Service League of Michigan City, a local non-profit organization that lends medical equipment that consists of wheelchairs, walkers, shower, bath, and toilet aids at no cost to any Michigan City resident for use in the home. During their 16 hours or work, Mr. Handyman will be focusing on ceilings, painting and building repairs along with drywall work.

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 the Service League of Michigan City as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Curt Cipares, owner of the Mr. Handyman of Michigan City. "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.
