‘Volunteer Day’ is looking for a few good project sites
For Saturday, April 20

On Saturday, April 20, 2013, hundreds of Lakewood residents will fan out across the city to spruce up the yard or home exterior of fellow Lakewood residents in need. Volunteer Day has been making a positive difference in the city every spring for 16 years.

Help locate qualifying sites in Lakewood. They need to be private homes in Lakewood owned by a Lakewood resident. Recipients can be seniors or persons of any age who, because of disability or limited economic means, need some neighborly help to make their yard or home exterior a little nicer. Work can include gardening, yard clean-up or minor painting.
