Neighbors Helping Neighbors: Handy Helper lends a hand to those in need
Has anyone you know said, “I don’t need charity! I can’t call for help!”
Linda was like this…before she encountered Handy Helpers at Shepherd’s Center. Today she’s singing another tune. “Don’t consider it charity. Shepherd’s Center is a blessing.
Not long ago Linda had a ceiling light go out. Too high up, she couldn’t reach it to replace the bulb and was having trouble finding someone to replace it for her.
Then a friend encouraged her call the Handy Helpers program at Shepherd’s Center.
Hesitant at first to accept help, Linda finally called. “It was so easy to call and arrange and I was able to finally get someone to replace that light!”
Linda offered to pay the Handy Helpers volunteer handyman. But as a volunteer, Bill – and other Handy Helpers – give their time and talent and are not paid. Bill told Linda that Shepherd’s Center’s programs like Handy Helpers are supported by donations and if she was moved to make a gift to SCGV, she was welcome to do so.
Do you or a friend need a small handyman job done around the house – inside or out? Call Handy Helpers at Shepherd’s Center! We are just a call or email away: 304-645-4196 or email@example.com.
