Join PWC’s annual summer 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.
Repair Affair is moving to June! While our largest participation date and celebration will be held on Saturday, June 10, Repair Affair groups will still be able to choose any date in June that works best for them.
All teams participating in Repair Affair on Saturday, June 10th are invited back to PWC at 4612 Paddock Road to pick up a volunteer hat and to enjoy lunch following their service project. We will be hosting a cookout from 11am-2pm and the LaRosa's Pizza Truck will be passing out pizza from 12pm-2pm. We hope to see everyone then!
What is Repair Affair?
Repair Affair is one of PWC's annual volunteer events. 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!
Register online or contact Brian McLaughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (513) 482-5165
Your group will be matched with a project that fits your skills and preferences. See below for an up-to-date list of some of our current opportunities. 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.
