Do you know a community project that could improve life in Rockdale and easily be finished with a few more hands? The fifth annual Hands Across Rockdale day of service returns April 30, 2016 and is now accepting submissions for community projects.
This special event brings together service-minded volunteers to work for four hours on local projects that serve those in need and help make Rockdale a better place to live. Now’s the time to apply to become a Hands Across Rockdale project. Past projects have ranged from trash pickup to painting, planting, beautification, trail clearing, window washing and more.
Work on the project must be able to be completed within four hours and not require skilled labor. Projects associated with a nonprofit group, school or park are preferred. Project organizers and leaders must be on site during the event to guide volunteers, must obtain materials for the project, which may be reimbursed, and obtain any necessary authorizations for the project site.
Sponsors can donate online!
Hands Across Rockdale is also seeking sponsors to help reimburse the cost of project materials, and now it’s easier than ever. To become a sponsor, go to www.handsacrossrockdale.org and donate online or fill out the application form. This is a great option for businesses and organizations that may not have the time but would like to pitch in. Sponsor names and logos will be featured on the T-shirts worn by volunteers and more.
