Whether you are an active retiree, a youth group, boy scout troop or church organization, your help is needed! Volunteerism is the lifeblood of the Senior Home Repair Program. While we always appreciate construction skill, all hands on board are useful—even kids! And what a way to teach our children to remember the elderly in our community whom are dependent on others for assistance.
The Senior Home Repair Program also relies on donations to complete repairs for seniors in Preble County. Overhead for the program is provided by the HIT Foundation; 100 percent of donations go to the costs of labor and material for repairs.
