Hands in Service
Hands In Service provides basic house cleaning, laundry and simple food preparation for those in our community under the age of 65 who have health concerns or disabilities that limit these very basic activities in daily life; at no cost to the client.
In teams of 2 or more people, Blitz volunteers perform one-time cleaning assignments for clients; clearing out the clutter while restoring a sense of hope and dignity to those who desperately need it.
This is a great opportunity for families, teams, friends, youth groups, or individuals who wish to serve on an occasional basis but cannot commit to a consistent schedule.
