As part of the National Day of Service, technicians from Mr. Handyman of Greater Naples will perform 12 hours of repair and maintenance work on Sept. 9 - all without a collecting a single penny in labor costs.
The local business will repair doors , paint walls and power wash the exterior of the Youth Haven campus at 5867 Whitaker Road in Naples. The non-profit organization, which is a leader in one-of-a-kind programs and services for abused and neglected children and at-risk families, was chosen by Mr. Handyman for the charity 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 Youth Haven as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Jay Gravel, Owner of Mr. Handyman of Greater Naples. "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.
