Client testimonial:
“I would like to express my appreciation for the help I have received from your organization. A couple of weeks ago “Windy”, arrived and cheerfully hung my storm windows. Today a group appeared, raked, trimmed and then even mowed my lawn. The attitude of these people made them a joy to be around. I am 98 years of age, and can no longer do these jobs, and to hire professionals would be unaffordable, nor could they do a more thorough job. Thank you for providing these services.”
