Repair Affair & Prepare Affair

Join Prepare Affair! Nov. 16, 2019

Volunteers rake leaves.

If you are looking for a fun way to volunteer Saturday, November 16, look no further! We need Prepare Affair crew members. This is always a rewarding morning, helping those who are limited in their ability to take care of their homes. Our focus this year is no further than Mt. Washington. Your team will assist with jobs ranging from raking leaves and cleaning gutters, taking yard furniture indoors, covering window air conditioners to performing other small home repairs for elderly and/or disabled homeowners.  Children can join their parents, seeing how people can share and help one another in community service. To sign up, please click HERE and choose Mitch Dunn as your crew leader. We hope you will join us! To learn more about People Working Cooperatively, go to www.pwchomerepairs.org

Repair Affair

Repair Affair provides home repairs, emergency response, weatherization, accessibility modifications, etc. to very low-income elderly, disabled, single-parent, and other at-risk households to assure their critical housing needs are met.  Volunteers do everything from minor repairs including plumbing and carpentry to yard work.  Held in May, Repair Affair is sponsored by People Working Cooperatively.  Christ the King forms teams of 3-6 people who are assigned to one or more households; the work depends on the skills a team can bring.  Children can join their parents, seeing how people can share and help one another.

For both Prepare Affair and Repair Affair we are usually assigned homes within 5 miles of Mt. Lookout.  The people who have worked on both Repair Affair (May) and Prepare Affair (Nov) found this volunteer work to be very satisfying.
