Metro Louisville’s: Building Our Blocks – California Neighborhood – April 15
Join Hand in Hand as we partner with Metro Louisville’s Building our Blocks! This program brings teams of Louisville city workers – including Public Works, Codes & Regulations, Parks, LMPD, Louisville Fire and Community Services – into one neighborhood for an intensive community “clean-up and build-up” session.
Hand in Hand volunteers will gather at the Hand in Hand office, 2225 Steier Lane at 7:45 am and carpool to the Russell neighborhood. We will then break into Metro-led groups to pick up trash in the community.
Bring trash pickers, brooms, rakes, dustpans, if possible. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Volunteers will receive a Hand in Hand t-shirt to wear for the day.
Habitat for Humanity: Saturday, May 20, 8 AM – 4 PM (8 hours) – 1900 Duncan Street, Louisville, KY 40203
Habitat for Humanity invites Hand in Hand volunteers to join forces for their next “Love Your Neighborhood” event. This initiative focuses on community development and repair through partnerships with homeowners and community groups. Projects will include home preservation and neighborhood beautification.
40 Hand in Hand volunteers are needed. Registration will open April 18. First come, first serve! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 502.459.9930.
