Honest Abe Care Fest Workcamp to provide free repairs to Springfield homes

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - BUNN Development Guild officials say more than 440 adult and teenage volunteers will provide free home repairs to dozens of Springfield households during the Honest Abe Care Fest Workcamp from July 12 until July 18.

Officials say as many as 70 homes will be repaired during this workcamp, as volunteers help with interior and exterior painting, weatherization, porch and wheelchair ramp construction, and other work.  In all, officials estimate that about 15,000 hours of volunteer labor will be represented during next week's efforts.

Several volunteer opportunities and activities are still available, such as "Adopt a Site," "Finishing Teams," "In-Kind Donations," and "Daily Activities."  If you're interested in volunteering during this workcamp, call (217) 585-7800 or email honestabecarefest2015@gmail.com.
