The event will begin at 9 a.m. May 19 at the Civic Center, located at 300 E. Central Ave. Local volunteers, including local Boy & Girl Scouts, West Carrollton High School students, and employees of local businesses, meet at the Civic Center and then spread out across the community to assist local residents.
Volunteers help spruce up the homes of West Carrollton residents by pulling weeds, trimming shrubs, planting flowers, or painting, for elderly or disabled residents who need extra help with outside chores. All volunteers receive a t-shirt and a picnic lunch served at the Civic Center after completing the projects – usually around noon.
Ten different households have already requested assistance on that day. The city seeks volunteers of all ages and abilities to participate.
“A few hours of service can really make a big difference in the community, especially when we have a great turnout of volunteers.” said Christian Mattingly, parks and recreation director.
