In less than a month, the United Way of Eastern LaSalle County will send volunteers to 29 homes for repairs and cleanup. Now’s the time for anyone thinking about volunteering to get the Labor of Love volunteer application form. Executive Director Shelli Ocepek says you can get one at the United Way office at First National Bank on Ottawa’s south side or on the United Way chapter’s web site.
Ocepek says every skill level from expert to unskilled is needed.
The home repair day is on Saturday, October 5. House captains are needed sooner. Their first meeting is Tuesday, September 17 when they will pick the houses they will oversee work at.
