Glendale’s Parks, Recreation & Neighborhood Services
Hundreds of volunteers from various organization, schools and non-profits will complete several community services projects in Glendale on two different “SERVE DAY” Saturdays (February 21st & 28th). Projects include: gleaning fruit, nature trail cleanup, refurbishing downtown park benches, and neighborhood beautification.
Glendale’s Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services identified the projects. The volunteers come from various churches and organizations, including Catholic Charities, Apollo High School, School Nutrition Association of Arizona (SNAAZ), Glendale Elementary School District and Faith Bible Church, as well as individual citizens.
Participating in “SERVE DAY” is an opportunity to give back to the community and help those in need. For the city, “SERVE DAY” now in its 9th year, is an opportunity to address projects that would not be possible without volunteer support.
The first “SERVE DAY” is 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 21. Volunteers will work at several locations across the city:
- Picking fruit at Sahuaro Ranch Park. All fruit will be donated to St. Mary’s Food Bank. The park is at 59th Avenue and Mountain View Road. Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. at this location.
- Refurbishing downtown park benches. Volunteers will meet at 9 a.m. in front of the Velma Teague Library, 7010 N. 58th Ave.
- Nature trail cleanup at Skunk Creek, volunteers will meet at 8:30 a.m. in front of the Foothills Recreation & Aquatics Center, 5600 W. Union Hills Drive.
