Help veterans, seniors, and disabled homeowners in the Town of Mashpee by joining The
Big Fix on Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013.

Coordinated by Housing Assistance Corporation, The Big Fix sends teams of volunteers to
assist homeowners with clean-up, landscaping, and small home repair projects.
Since 2010, HAC has mobilized over 250 volunteers and assisted 40 households in
Barnstable, Sandwich and Dennis.

 Kick-off will be at Mashpee High School, and begins at 8:30 a.m. with coffee and donuts.
Most houses are finished by 1:00 p.m. Volunteers also receive lunch and a
T-shirt.

Spend half a day and make a real difference in the comfort, safety, and quality of life for
those in need in our community.

 Volunteers should be physically able to perform tasks of moderate intensity, such as
pruning hedges, raking, hauling brush, cleaning gutters, and moving heavy/bulky
items to and from storage.

Basic home repair skills (painting, carpentry, electric, plumbing, masonry) are a plus but
not required.

Minors must be accompanied and supervised by a parent or guardian. Please, no pets.

Interested individuals and groups should sign up by Sept. 13
at www.haconcapecod.org/big-fix.

Get further information by contacting HAC Volunteer Coordinator, Mary Everett-Patriquin, at
volunteer@haconcapecod.org, or by phone at 508-771-5400, ext. 279.
