Repair Affair is Bell-Whitley Community Action Agency’s annual spring home maintenance event. Utilizing volunteer labor and donated materials, elderly and disabled homeowners have minor home repairs and maintenance done. Often the repair needs are inconvenient to the homeowner and are cost prohibitive.
Volunteers with Repair Affair are assigned to a specific home and have specific jobs that they are responsible for. These volunteers see their projects through to completion. All projects selected for Repair Affair can be accomplished in one day. If, for some reason, the job is not completed that day, then the volunteers complete it another day.
Repair Affair accepts volunteers from all backgrounds and there are no specific skills required. You may find yourself working alongside attorneys, pastors, high school/college students, secretaries, or even a professional building contractor. The only requirement is a willingness to work hand-in-hand in order to help those who are less fortunate.
Some of the maintenance needs that are encountered include: replacing entry doors, hanging or patching gutters, installing new vanities, faucet replacement/repair, lock replacement, installing wireless doorbells, smoke detectors, handrails, porch repair/replace, painting, etc. There is also the need for grass cutting, hedge trimming, and weeding. The list is endless, the need is great, but the reward is unparalleled.
