On the 2nd Saturday of each month, beginning at approximately 8 am, we assist widows, single mothers, the disabled, and the elderly who need help with “Handyman” and Accessibility Projects. All projects are scoped and planned to be completed within a 4-hour period: with completion typically by noon.
