Trades Day of Caring

Trades Day of Caring

With winter soon upon us, United Way Sault Ste. Marie and district and Sault College are again teaming up this year on Saturday, Oct. 17th for the Trades Day of Caring. Are you a senior who needs help to prepare your home? Do you know a senior who needs help?

This project provides help to seniors in Sault Ste. Marie with minor household repairs and
maintenance – ensuring the homes are prepared for the upcoming winter season. Under the
guidance of Sault College instructors, Sault College Trades students will be assigned to several different households to perform minor repairs to seniors’ homes, including raking, caulking, and sealing windows and doors to prevent heat loss.

If you are, or know a senior that needs help, call Jeff at the United Way SSM at 256-7476 x 207. This year’s deadline to sign up is 4pm on Friday, Oct. 9th.
