Welcome to our Helping hands building trees of hope program

"Working Together to Make Our Communities Better!"

At Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services, we believe it's important to give back to the community so we have created the Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program benefiting Herizon House, a local women's shelter.


We have assembled our fourth Tree of Hope, a symbol of commitment, inspiration and community. Our goal is to fill our tree by December 31, 2018 with Helping Hands from clients, friends, family and businesses who donate any brand new, unopened, still in the manufactures packaging items from the Donation Suggested Wish List which will be given directly to the women in the shelter. We are committed to making our communities a better and safer place for women and their children.


Visit our Community Page to view our wish-list at www.donofalltrades.ca. Herizon House is a not-for-profit, charitable organization that provides a place of safety where women and their children will feel accepted, supported and empowered as they move towards living their lives free of violence in Durham Region. By supporting organizations like Herizon House, we acknowledge that in order to end the cycle of violence we must work in partnership with our community.


Our team here at Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services would be most grateful if you or your organization could donate items to help us implement our program. If you are interested, we will keep you informed with regular updates on the progress of our project.


Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Yolanda D'Orazio for the Helping Hands Building Trees of Hope Program via email at: helpinghandsprogram@outlook.com if you are able to donate a helping hand and to coordinate pick-up and drop off arrangements in advance.


We thank you in advance for your patience, kindness and support!on
