HARWICH BIG FIX
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22
The Big Fix is an annual event that supports the impactful work of Housing Assistance Corporation (HAC) in three ways:
- Raising much-needed funds to enrich and enhance HAC's existing services.
- Providing assistance to veterans, seniors and disabled homeowners with clean-up, landscaping, and small home repairs.
- Offering a meaningful hands-on experience for volunteers on the day of the event.
WAYS TO PARTICIPATE
TEAM LEADERS are the engine and motivator of a Big Fix team! Your job is to use FirstGiving to set a fundraising goal, recruit a team of 6-10+ people (both Fundraisers and Hands-on Volunteers), give them the tools they need to succeed, and to cheer them on! We have lots of materials to help you!
FUNDRAISERS use a Fix-a-Thon model (similar to a walk-a-thon) to raise money to support not just the Big Fix, but HAC's many programs and services. We encourage you to use FirstGiving or you can use a pledge sheet or these other fundraising tools.
If you are interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Mary Everett-Patriquin at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 508-771-5400, ext. 279.
HANDS-ON VOLUNTEERS do the clean-up, landscaping, and small home repair projects at the homes we've selected on the day of the event. Tasks can include weeding, pruning hedges, raking, hauling brush, and moving items to the curb for disposal or recycling. Basic home repair skills (painting, carpentry, electric, plumbing, masonry) are a plus, but not required.
