United Caring Services of Evansville needs a few sets of hands to help get a couple of apartments ready for future residents.

The Evansville-based non-profit dedicated to providing shelter and other needs to homeless individuals is in need of "a couple of small crews (of) 3-4 people" to "clean, paint, and get them ready for new tenants."

This would be a great opportunity for church groups or youth groups looking to pick up a few community service hours. For more information or to volunteer, all Neva Jo Balser-Van Meter at (812) 422-0297.
