As part of the National Day of Service, technicians from the Mr. Handyman of DeBary, Lake Mary and Winter Springs will perform 16 hours of repairs and maintenance jobs on Sept. 9, all without collecting a single penny in labor costs.
The local Mr. Handyman franchise, owned and operated by Chad Olson, has made Safehouse of Seminole the day's primary beneficiary. Safehouse of Seminole provides a confidential safe place for victims of domestic violence and their children, and its aim is to generate long-term social change. Olson's staff of technicians will spend the day painting , conducting carpentry tasks and performing general cleanup and repair services.
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 Safehouse of Seminole for the third consecutive year as part of Mr. Handyman's National Day of Service campaign," said Olson. "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.
