Greenhouse Ministries will host their first Fix-It-Fair this weekend, Saturday August 19th from 9 AM-12 Noon. The event will be at Greenhouse Ministries. The goal of the Fix-It-Fair event is to empower our community to be more energy efficient and fix things themselves. Greenhouse will partner with Lowes to teach basic tutorials that will save a visit from a professional and the fees that occur with their home visit. The tutorials include how to caulk, sink and faucet repair, toilet repair, how to patch drywall, and electrical safety.
Lowes Assistant Manager, Tonya Proctor, says Lowe's 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."
Greenhouse Ministries Public Relations and Events Coordinator, Rachel Young, shares her excitement about the event as well.
"We are so thrilled Lowe's chose to partner with us for our first Fix-It-Fair," Young said. "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!"
If you are interested in attending, please visit Greenhouse Ministries to receive a voucher. There are limited spots for the tutorials.
