Event Details:
Repair Affair mobilizes resources and volunteers to make repairs on homes owned by low income homeowners who are elderly or disabled. The focus of Repair Affair is on home safety, security, weatherizing, and neighborhood stability. Most repairs are completed in one day. Repair Affair volunteers are able to complete repairs because generous donors keep them equipped. Donations are used to purchase materials and tools, and donated repair materials are put to work.

  • wheelchair ramps
