Building Communities: Mission in Action
Next Volunteer Date Set For May 3rd
On May 3rd, the Y will host the fourth BC:MIA project. Mission in Action is a collaborative project that aids in clean-up and repair of homes across Brown County. Over the course of the first three projects, a combined total of 120 volunteers have come together to paint, power wash, clean gutters, landscape, weed eat, trim trees and more in an effort to help our neighbors in need. Appreciative homeowners across every community in Brown County have benefitted from these projects.
If you would like to join us for a day of volunteering, you can pre-register at the Y, or simply show up at 8:00 a.m. on May 3rd. Many supplies are provided, but if you have rakes, shears, hammers, etc. to bring along, they are appreciated. Lunch is provided at the Y, with transportation to and from the sites provided by West Central Mass Transit District. A wrap-up party with treats and prizes is held at the end of the day, also at the Y.
The BC:MIA project is a collaborative effort between the Y, Tracy Family Foundation, Two Rivers Regional Council and local churches. All local youth groups are encouraged to join our efforts. Adult project leaders will be needed. Contact Suzanne Woodward or Karla Metz if you have any questions about this great activity. Practice your social responsibility by helping those closest to you!
