Volunteers Needed for Community Pride Day

Posted on May 1, 2017


West Carrollton’s City Beautiful Commission will host its annual neighborhood clean-up, Community Pride Day, on Saturday, May 20.

 

The event will begin at 9 a.m. May 20 at the Civic Center, located at 300 E. Central Ave. Local volunteers, including local Boy & Girl Scouts, students from West Carrollton High School, 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 local 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.

 

“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. He said citizens of all ages and abilities are invited to participate.

 

The deadline to request assistance is Monday, May 15.

 

For more information, call the parks and recreation department at (937) 859-5182.
