You may remember back on July 15, 2015 we notified you of a case that needed our attention for a new roof for this ill Mike D. new client of HDHM. If you follow below you will see what a small group of volunteers and contractors can do in a matter of one month.
My Danbury home has leaks in two locations from the roof. I’m in a difficult situation because a year ago last November I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. This cancer of the blood forced me to leave my staff position as photographer for the News Times. I had no intention of retiring and find myself struggling to get by on SS Disability. In today’s mail I had a notice from my home insurance company saying that the roof is to be repaired by 9/1/15 or they’ll cancel my coverage. I am hoping the Handy Dandy Handyman organization can help as I face a second winter with a tarped roof and the loss of my home insurance. Any help the HDHM organization can provide will be greatly appreciated. Home in question Leaks in kitchen 2 years. Thank you

Thanks to several anonymous $$ donors who were instrumental in helping us pay for all the materials and perhaps a little left over for misc items for Mike D.
Other action shots from the workers at all levels. (No Pun Intended)
All in all it was a fabulous project with many hands and a spirit of giving for our client who has been informed by his doctor he only has 4-5 years to live.
God bless Mike and we thank him for allowing us this “Feel Good Day”.
Making a difference is what we do best
Remember to use these contractors for roof, gutters, and handymen services as a show of support for the volunteering they do with HDHM.
