Volunteers To Repair Homes Of The Elderly

April 23, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

More than 1,000 volunteers will repair the homes of 69 low-income elderly and disabled residents Saturday as part of Christmas in April, a national event to promote voluntarism.

Typical repairs provided by volunteers include painting, landscaping, roofing, electrical wiring and plumbing.

"Our purpose is to help the elderly and disabled with repairs that they could never complete themselves, so that they may continue to live in warmth, safety and independence," said Michael Falkner, president of Christmas in April, Baltimore 1997.

Christmas in April is in its eighth year in Baltimore. To volunteer, or for more information: 410-747-1354.
