TUESDAY TOOLMENWanted: Handy, Big-Hearted Helpers


Our Tuesday Toolmen (and women!) are a small group of volunteers that work to help keep seniors and families safe in their homes. The Tuesday Toolmen focus on home safety repairs for low-income neighbors. These repairs may include installing smoke detectors, working on minor plumbing, installing grab bars and handrails, weatherization, and more.
