Christmas in April is a non-denominational volunteer organization that repairs the homes of senior citizens who are either low-income and/or physically challenged so they may live in warmth, safety, and independence.
After months of planning and preparation, Christmas in April culminates in a one day repair effort on the last Saturday in April.
Christmas in April relies on the community for support from volunteers to repair the homes, and seeks funding from businesses, corporations and individuals.
The success of Christmas in April is due to the cooperative efforts of County government, private businesses, civic and community organizations, churches and synagogues.
Members of the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department are scheduled for several home renovation projects Saturday morning at homes throughout the County.
