The City of Celina kicks-off its inaugural Life Connected. Service Day on April 22nd. Drawing inspiration from Texas A&M University’s “Big Event” which has become the nation’s largest one-day student-run service project, the City of Celina hopes to inspire positive physical and social change within the Celina community. This event is a one-day service project that seeks to unite residents who need assistance with home maintenance and repairs with volunteer groups who wish to provide assistance to their community.
Residents with needs register their projects online and Jade Mizzell, Life Connected Manager, will review the feasibility of accomplishing the tasks. Jade envisions flower bed prep and planting, mowing, cleaning gutters, fence repair, or debris removal. Typical jobs that will take approximately four hours to complete and are on the outside of the home. Residents commit to providing the tools and resources necessary to complete the projects and to be present at the workday.
The Life Connected Service Day can only be successful with volunteers. Grab your Girl Scout Troop, neighbors, motorcycle club, or any other combination of hard-workers, and register to serve your community. Volunteers are encouraged to indicate what type of project you would like to participate in. On the Life Connected Service Day, pack up your tools and prepare to connect with your group and those in the community you serve and meet Jade and her team at the downtown pavilion for t-shirts and breakfast. After a brief safety training volunteers will meet with their assigned resident and get to work.
The City of Celina, through their Life Connected initiative, is committed to transforming and enhancing our community through acts of service and opportunities to build relationships with our neighbors. Get involved today!
