RepairClinic.com® employees and friends to bring know-how and energy to help elderly and less fortunate Canton residents
In lieu of sleeping in this Saturday, April 28, they will pay it forward by joining Canton’s annual “Christmas in Action” event to provide free home repairs for area seniors and disabled residents. RepairClinic’s experts will fix appliances while others will be involved with roofing and exterior repairs, painting and cleaning projects for homeowners.
“For us, it’s a Saturday very well spent,” said Joey Gagnon, a RepairClinic vice president. “We’re grateful to Christmas in Action of Wayne County for the opportunity to put our skills to use to help those who need it most in the Canton community.”
The company’s participation is led by RepairClinic Outreach, a group of employees dedicated to making a positive impact, locally and nationally. This is the second time RepairClinic has volunteered at “Christmas in Action.” It’s one of several causes that RepairClinic and the Outreach group are supporting this year with volunteerism and other donations.
