Dowlings Christmas in April
Mr. Handyman of Ft. Washington and Clinton volunteers with the recipient of their Christmas in April community involvement event.

Mr. Handyman of Ft. Washington and Clinton franchise owners Race and Joyce Dowling have only been in business for six months, yet they have already given back to their community in a big way. As residents of the area for more than 30 years, the Dowlings were eager to participate in the community's Christmas in April event and donated their time and two service technicians' talents to a Fort Washington resident.

The Gazette showcased the project, which included the following To Do list, all free of charge:

1. Replace the gutters and downspouts

2. Install a new storm door

3. Fix leaky faucets and toilets

4. Replace a shower wall

5. Weatherized windows to help make the home more energy efficient

The recipient of their good deed was just released from the hospital, has limited mobility and eyesight, and she has her children and grandchildren living with her. The Dowlings partnered with Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. Prince George's County Chapter who cleaned and organized several rooms, completed landscaping and fed all the volunteers.
