Many volunteering for Labor of Love

Posted by wlpo on September 17, 2010

There won’t be a shortage of laborers for the Labor of Love projects taking place Saturday.  Volunteers will be making repairs to 14 area homes, helping the homeowners get ready for winter.  They’ll be checking furnaces and adding weather stripping to doors and windows along with some  safety projects.

Andrea Walters is the Executive Director of the Illinois Valley United Way.  She says it’s led by volunteers.

Some of the materials are donated and many of the volunteers bring their own tools.

Walters says the majority of the people they help of are low-income seniors.

She says they have more than enough volunteers this year but could always use people to help next September.
