Surprise Day of Service set for Oct. 10

Volunteers needed for various projects across the city

Posted

Volunteers are needed for the Surprise Human Service and Community Vitality Department’s Day of Service on Saturday, Oct. 10.

Those who volunteer will participate in various projects across the city, including landscaping, painting, trimming of shrubs and debris removal.

City officials said the neighborhood revitalization and cleanup event assists neighborhoods and homeowners who may not be physically or financially able to maintain their homes.

Volunteers will meet at the Surprise Senior Center, 15832 N. Hollyhock St. Because of COVID-19 conditions, participants are required to wear face coverings and will be split into small groups. Check in times will also be staggered.

The first group will arrive at 8 a.m. Each project will last from two to four hours.

Interested individuals and groups can register with Larry Garcia at Larry.Garcia@surpriseaz.gov, or 623-222-1522.

Groups should be limited to a maximum of 10. The group’s name and estimated number of volunteers should be submitted with the city beforehand.
