Emerging Leaders' 2nd Annual "Operation Curb Appeal" Community Service Project
On April 13, 2014, a group of 12 volunteers spent the day assisting with our most recent Operation Curb Appeal project with the JFS Fix-It Service. Over the course of the afternoon, the volunteers got to know Angel, an older woman who had experienced medical setbacks and needed help cleaning and repairing her home in preparation for a new caregiver. Over the course of four hours, the volunteers removed a truckload of debris from her yard, thoroughly cleaned her home, installed new shelves and a screen door, and re-landscaped her front yard. Now, Angel can can enjoy an afternoon in the yard with her dog Foxie or invite neighbors into her home knowing it is safe, clean, and welcoming.
