Mr. Handyman Franchise to Donate Repair Work for National Day of Service

September 07, 2011 // Franchising.com // ANN ARBOR, MI – As part of the National Day of Service, Mr. Handyman technicians will perform hundreds of repair and maintenance jobs on Sept. 9, all without a collecting a single penny in labor costs.

From Los Angeles to Washington D.C., Mr. Handyman franchisees have organized local repair projects that will all take place Sept. 9 for children's hospitals, domestic violence shelters, homes of military veterans, and other groups in need across the country.

The National Day of Service and Remembrance was established in 2009 as a way to encourage Americans to participate in service and remembrance activities on the 9/11 anniversary. This year, more than 1 million Americans are expected to serve in their communities in honor of 9/11, according to United We Serve, a national organization that rallies behind the cause. The day is part of President Obama's request to renew America through volunteerism.

This marks the third consecutive year Mr. Handyman has rallied around the cause, donating a combined 1,600 hours of labor to groups in need over the past two years. The franchise will use their skilled technicians' time with the local charities and hopes to build on this effort in 2011.

"Our brand is made up of local entrepreneurs who thrive in their communities and there's no better time for our franchisees to give back than on this day," said Todd Recknagel, President and CEO of Mr. Handyman. "During this time, it's important to show the country what we're capable of – a day when we give something of great value to those who need us most."
