Raleigh, N.C. (Sept. 11, 2019 )– As part of the National Day of Service, technicians and owners from Mr. Handyman of Western Wake County will perform 48 hours of construction, repair and maintenance jobs on Wednesday, Sept. 11, all without collecting a single penny in labor costs.

Located at 3213 Banks Road in Raleigh, Horses for Hope uses horses to help those with special needs.

This project is an example of a national effort by Mr. Handyman where technicians from coast to coast are encouraged to reach out to a special local charity, organization, or individual in need to offer their services in fixing up living areas, kitchens, bathrooms or anything else that comes to mind. All projects will take place during the month of September in honor of the anniversary of 9/11.

“We are thrilled to be working with Horses for Hope this year for our 2019 National Day of Service project,” said Robin Foster, co-owner of Mr. Handyman of Western Wake County. “We are always looking for ways to give back to our community, now more than ever. We have participated in National Service Day for eight years, starting soon after we opened our doors for business in 2010. This is something our team looks forward to each year.”man working on wood deck

The Sept. 11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is a federally-recognized day of service aimed at honoring the victims, survivors, and those who served in response to the attacks and transforming the tragedy into a day of unity.

Launched in 2002 by the non-profit MyGoodDeed, National Day of Service is the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement, with nearly 30 million Americans stepping out each Sept. 11 to volunteer and support charities, according to 9/11 Day.

“Our brand is made up of local entrepreneurs who thrive in their communities, and there’s no better time for our franchisees to give back than through this campaign,” said J.B. Sassano, President of Mr. Handyman. “During this time, it’s important to show the country what we're capable of – honoring the lives and memories of 9/11 heroes past and present.”
