As part of the National Day of Service , technicians from Mr. Handyman of SE Boone, W Hamilton & N Marion Counties will perform 16 hours of repair and maintenance jobs on Sept. 9, all without a collecting a single penny in labor costs.
The local Mr. Handyman franchise, owned and operated by James Furrer, has made Indiana Mentor the day's primary beneficiary. Indiana Mentor is part of a national network of local service providers, and its aim is to provide life enhancing services to adults and children, including residential services, supported living therapeutic foster care and adult foster care. James Furrer's staff of technicians will spend the day painting, making drywall repairs , performing general cleanup and doors.
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 Indiana Mentor as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Furrer. "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.
