ADULT LEARNING & SERVICES (PALS), INC.
1548 MOUNT VERNON ROAD
DUNWOODY, GA 30338
PALS offers an outreach program of Handyman Service for those in the community
who need a helping hand. We have 2 retired men who have been doing handyman
type jobs as a hobby (at least not their primary job) for many years. The
goal is to provide help to Senior homeowners for minor repairs/installations.
Most professionals are not interested in such minor jobs except at higher
than expected costs. HandyPals charges $10 per job which goes to the Handypal
volunteer to cover his transportation and tools. Any supplies are furnished
by the homeowner. Jobs requiring more extensive work may be accepted by the
handypal if he feels competent in doing the work and a price is agreed upon. Examples
of work done are as follows:
Change Light fixtures
Replace electric outlets/switches
Minor repairs to cabinets/furniture/etc.
Repair leaking faucets
Repair leaking toilet tanks
Install Window blinds
Hang/Rehang closet doors
Replace window pane
All materials are paid for by the owner
