The deadline to request assistance for the event is Monday, May 13.
Community Pride Day will begin at 9 a.m. May 18 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.
“A few hours of service really does make a big difference to the residents in our community, especially when we have a great turnout of volunteers.” said Christian Mattingly, parks and recreation director.
