NeighborWorks Week, a week long celebration of community where thoughts of volunteers come together to help make their neighborhoods healthy and sustainable to live and work, is celebrated across the country annually June 2 through June 9. This national celebration is sponsored by NeighborWorks America, a nonprofit devoted to building stronger communities through affordable housing and community development. More than 150 projects are planned through the country during this week.
Locally, ten residents of East Chattanooga’s Historic Glass Farm and official members of Habitat’s Neighbor Labor Program, are making sure that the Scenic City is placed on the NeighborWorks Week national map by devoting a half day to complete repairs on one of their neighbor’s 1,387 sq.
ft. home. Residents will work side by side to complete interior and exterior painting projects and repair the home’s siding.
East Chattanooga homeowner, Maria Bradley, and ten of her neighbors will be completing repairs on her three-bedroom home on Friday, June 8 from 10-11:30 a.m.
