Volunteers working with the Henry County Fuller Center for Housing, Inc., are calling on community members to help the local organization in providing for the area's needy in home repairs.

The non-profit affiliate of the Fuller Center for Housing is in need of a two-axle enclosed utility trailer, according to organization officials.

Volunteer John Quinn said the needed trailer dimensions measure 6-by-12 feet. It would be used to store and haul tools and building materials for various area home repair projects.

"We would possibly like to have a new one donated," said Quinn.

The volunteer said a new mobile utility trailer would cost about $3,195.

Quinn acknowledged it has been a challenge finding an affordable trailer to house the tools and materials. He said it also has been a challenge for volunteers to transport construction materials from site to site for the more than 50 home repair projects since 2010.

"We always need sponsors and volunteers and donations as there are always people in need of home repairs," he said.
