What a pity

Program offers win-win solution from page 7

from page 7 Croston plied his trade, before the turn of the century. Up till now, this building was the only pre 1900 building in town that still had the original façade. What a pity that it had to be modernized. L. Dobrzensky Haliburton

need. SIRCH (a charitable organization in the county) has long been aware of this need for personalized, in-home help – the smaller tasks like painting, cleaning, respite, yard work, etc. We’d like people to know that our new Need a Hand program connects residents (seasonal and permanent) with screened, competent workers and/or volunteers registered with our program. SIRCH takes the call, will find you a match, and provide the

person to do it. No job considered too small, and if it’s too big, we’ll suggest local businesses that could help you out. There is a fee for the program, but a nice feature is a portion of every fee goes to fund these same types of services for families and individuals who can’t afford to pay the fee but need the help. People who are looking for work may lack the resources to place ads themselves, the skills to market themselves or the knowledge of the business landscape. Through Need a Hand individuals can register, receive regular work as well as ongoing support and training. In turn customers receive a ‘one stop shop’ with a timely, reliable worker. As a social enterprise, SIRCH’s Need a Hand creates a win-win solution. Please give us a call. 705-457-1742 . Nancy Brownsberger SIRCH
