The House of House of Lazarus (HOL) in Mountain got a $10,000 donation from 100 Men Who Care North Dundas. The money will go towards the HOL’s Handyman Heroes program. The group made the announcement at its first meeting held September 27.
Linking Hands Coordinator Sandy Casselman says the HOL provides all the supplies for Handyman Heroes, which is part of the Neighbours Helping Neighbours program. It involves volunteer construction workers and mechanics who offer up their expertise to help people in vulnerable situations.
Handyman Heroes is already having an impact: a mechanic helped a local family by doing a complete brake job on a vehicle. Casselman says this means one more family is safe on the road. She says a contractor is fixing a leaky roof for a single mother in the community.
