As part of the National Day of Service, technicians from Mr. Handyman of Northern Virginia – Arlington to Haymarket, Mr. Handyman of Fairfax and Eastern Loudoun Counties, Mosquito Joe of Northern Prince William County, Five Star Painting of Manassas, all Neighborly companies, in addition to The Junkluggers of Gainesville Virginia, RulyScapes, Inc.; Shaw Services Air Conditioning & Heating; Patriot Pottys, LLC; DJMcNeely, Inc.; DHill Financial; Spectrum Homes, Inc.; and ABC Glass and Mirror, all locally owned businesses, will donate over 580 hours of repair and maintenance services on Friday, Sept. 9, for the 2022 National Day of Service.
Over 30 Mr. Handyman and other locally owned business owners and volunteer staff will visit the home of Woodbridge resident and disabled military veteran Ron Beyer and his wife Carol. Ron served in the US Army from 1965 to 1985. Ron and Carol are life members at VFW Post 1503, where they have been active members.
Mr. Handyman and several local business owners and volunteers will be renovating two bathrooms, installing a chair lift, landscaping, installing handrails, repairing the deck, painting the foundation, cleaning the gutters, power washing the house, servicing the HVAC system, and a variety other repairs and maintenance items to allow the Beyer’s more mobility and safety in and around their home.
This service project is part of a national effort by Mr. Handyman where technicians from coast to coast are encouraged to reach out to a special local charity, organization or individual in need of home repair services. Jobs include helping to repair, maintain and enhance living areas, kitchens, bathrooms or anything else in need of refurbishment and renovation. All projects will take place during the month of September in honor of the 21st anniversary of 9/11.
“We are honored to be serving Mr. and Mrs. Beyer as part of Mr. Handyman’s National Day of Service campaign,” said Jo McCabe, owner of Mr. Handyman of Northern Virginia – Arlington to Haymarket. “We are excited to be part of a national campaign that allows us to give back to our community. As a veteran myself, it is a great honor to be able to assist a fellow veteran and his family.”
The Sept.11 National Day of Service and Remembrance is a federally recognized day of service aimed at honoring the victims, survivors and those who served in response to the attacks and transforming the tragedy into a day of unity, empathy and positive service. Launched in 2002 by the non-profit MyGoodDeed, National Day of Service is the nation’s largest annual day of charitable engagement, with nearly 30 million Americans stepping out each Sept. 11 to volunteer and support charities in honor of 9/11, according to 9/11 Day.
This marks the 13th consecutive year Mr. Handyman has rallied around the cause, donating more than 7,000 hours of labor to groups in need over the past 13 years. The franchise will use its skilled technicians’ time this year to give back to local communities and bring people together for a positive cause.
“This campaign allows our franchise owners to band together and give back to the local communities that they serve every day. As we honor the lives and memories of 9/11 heroes, it is important to actively be part of these communities and step up where we are needed,” said Mr. Handyman President Jeff Palla. “Now more than ever, we’re focusing on bringing communities and groups of people together for a positive cause. I’m proud to attend this event and support our franchise owners in their communities.”
