On September 12th, employees and owners from Mr. Handyman of Western Wake County and Real Property Management-Excellence participated in a Day of Service. We provided painting and repair services for The Carying Place, a non-profit organization in Cary, North Carolina. The Carying Place teaches homeless, working families with children, life skills for attaining independent living while providing short-term housing and support services to address their individual needs.

This is the 3rd year that Mr. Handyman has worked with The Carying Place for their annual Day of Service. We were also supported by the local Valspar representative who donated 10 gallons of Valspar wall paint.

  • Living room
  • Dining room
  • Kitchen
  • Front hallway & upstairs hallway
  • Stairwell & railings
  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2-1/2 baths
