On Saturday, October 5, Housing Assistance’s 10th Annual Big Fix-A-Thon is coming to Hyannis and Centerville, and we need your help!
Volunteers are needed to serve as Fixers, Fundraisers, or Fixers/Fundraisers during the fundraising day of service.
Fixers will donate their time and talents helping this year’s recipients with a variety of small home repairs which typically includes yard work; hauling trash; interior and exterior painting; repair or replacement of walkways, stairs and fences; and light plumbing and electrical work. All skill levels are welcome.
Fundraisers show their commitment by raising funds for our year-round housing programs on Cape Cod and the Islands.
Fixers/Fundraisers make their impact go even further by doing both.
Volunteers who raise a minimum of $250 will receive a Big Fix-A-Thon commemorative hammer lapel pin. Prizes, which include a $500 gift certificate to Embargo and 2 round-trip Cape Air tickets from Boston to a New England destination, will be given to individuals as well as teams who raise the most funds this year.
To register as a volunteer, click this link. The deadline to register is Monday, September 2. Space is limited. Volunteers will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Once Housing Assistance reaches capacity, registrants will be signed up to volunteer at overflow projects in the Town of Barnstable.
