People Working Cooperatively (PWC) strengthens communities by providing professional, critical home repairs, weatherization, modifications, and maintenance services to help residents stay safely in their homes. The organization is holding its annual Repair Affair on Saturday, May 13. Projects to be completed that day may range in complexity from installing handrails and repairing drywall to fixing leaky plumbing and repairing steps. Last year during the event more than 400 volunteers donated more than 2,000 total hours to serve 60 homeowners.

Jock Pitts, the president and CEO of People Working Cooperatively, is in the studio with Mark Perzel to discuss some additional results from the comprehensive Cadmus Group Study that shows the community and economic impact of PWC’s approach to repairing and upgrading the homes of elderly or needy residents. He also has information about the upcoming Repair Affair and how people can get involved with this region-wide event.
