Join PWC’s annual spring volunteer event and use your home repair skills to provide important home maintenance services to low-income seniors and people with disabilities in our community! Recruit a group of friends and family or organize a team from your company, school or faith-based group and
spend a morning helping your neighbors.
Schedule your service on a day of your choosing throughout the month of May—including weekends and weekdays—giving you ultimate flexibility and helping us avoid large gatherings.
Use your talents to help with exterior home maintenance projects including:
• Installing handrails
• Repairing concrete walkways
• Repairing decks and steps
• Painting and landscaping
• Other tasks that match your skills and interests!
What is Repair Affair?
Repair Affair is PWC's annual spring volunteer event. Form a small group of volunteers with home repair skills and make a concrete difference in the lives of our low-income neighbors by:
Fixing leaky plumbing
Repairing damaged walkways and steps
Performing other home maintenance for our clients
Who should volunteer for Repair Affair?
PWC is looking for individuals and small groups with home repair skills who can provide their own tools, and who are comfortable taking ownership of a minor home repair project. Though PWC staff will assess all projects ahead of time and will be available for technical support leading up to and during the event, we are unable to staff each Repair Affair project with a PWC technician. The best way for us to stretch our limited funding for this event is to rely on our capable volunteer crews to make it happen!
How are clients selected for Repair Affair?
PWC selects projects from its existing waiting list that are appropriate for volunteer groups. Volunteer provided services are specifically for our elderly clients, and those living with a disability, who are eligible to receive services based on household income, which is verified.
How to get involved:
Recruit a group of friends with home repair skills, or organize a team from your company, school or faith-based community!
Your group will be matched with a project that fits your skills and preferences. PWC will provide all materials, any necessary prep-work and handle debris disposal. We ask our volunteers to bring their own tools and commit to at least four hours of service.
What impact will I have?
PWC’s clients are all low-income homeowners, most of whom are seniors living on a fixed income. Though PWC employs a full-time staff of technicians to make critical emergency repairs throughout the year, the need frequently outstrips available resources, and many minor repairs end up on our lengthy waiting list. By volunteering for Repair Affair, volunteers will help pick away at this list and improve the safety and quality of life of the clients they serve.
