Volunteers help transform homes and families who need a fresh start! On Makeover Day a home is cleaned, painted, touched-up, repaired, redecorated and given new furniture. The unveiling of the transformed home is unforgettable not only to the family in need, but also to all the volunteers involved. We need volunteers to pick up donations, do light furniture repair, manage and organize the Fresh Perspectives warehouse, interior design and decorating, light construction work (laying tile and wood flooring, drywall, painting, etc.) The work can be demanding but incredibly rewarding! Fresh Perspectives coordinates a home makeover almost every week, with volunteering hours Monday-Friday, 9am-4pm. Contact Roy Juarez at 602-261-6737 or email@example.com
