Greenhouse Ministries will host their first Fix-It-Fair on August 19 from 9 a.m. to noon.
The Fix-It-Fair will empower Greenhouse's community to be more energy efficient and independent by fixing things themselves. The nonprofit will partner with Lowe's Home Improvement to teach basic tutorials that will save a visit from a professional and the fees that occur with their home visit. Tutorials include caulking, sink and faucet repair, toilet repair, patching drywall and basic electrical safety.
Lowe's Assistant Manager Tonya Proctor says the company is in the business of helping people improve and maintain their homes.
"We are honored to help support Greenhouse Ministries," Proctor said. "This is another chance for Lowe's to extend its deep, longstanding commitment to the communities where our employees and customers work and live."
"We are so thrilled Lowe's chose to partner with us for our first Fix-It-Fair," said Rachel Young, Greenhouse Ministries public relations and event coordinator. "We strive to be a organization with the goal of helping our clients become independent members of our community. This event will give them some of the tools they need to become empowered individuals. We cannot wait to see the results."
To attend, visit Greenhouse Ministries to receive a voucher. There are limited spots for the tutorials.
