Great News! Handyperson Services Resume
As of June 2021, 37 villagers volunteer as handy people. Fearrington Cares Handyperson volunteers can again help with minor non-emergency home repairs and small maintenance issues in homes where individuals have completed a vaccination regime. To request help, please call the Fearrington Cares Center 919-542-6877. We will share our protocols to keep you and our volunteers safe.
Fearrington Cares Handyperson Volunteers can help with both inside and outside minor non-emergency home repairs and small maintenance issues such as minor plumbing, carpentry, light bulb change, programming garage door openers, smoke detector battery replacement, and more. Note that the volunteers cannot move heavy furniture and, due to licensing regulations, they cannot do work involving electrical or gas connections.
No Fee or Membership Required for Our Services!
- Donations, while appreciated, are not required to use our services.
- Your support, as a volunteer and a donor, covers a portion of the costs.
