On Saturday, June 4, and for the third year, Habitat for Humanity Prince William County partnered with the Georgetown Village community for their annual cleanup day.
Georgetown Village is located off Route 1 in Woodbridge with 267 townhomes. The homeowner’s association provides dumpsters for the day so that residents can rid their yards and homes of unwanted items. Habitat for Humanity leads volunteers in projects that improve the public areas of the neighborhood.
One of the exciting things about the cleanup day is the level of youth participation in the event. Habitat for Humanity’s staff has had the pleasure of watching many of the youth volunteers grow up as several have participated for all three years.
In addition to members of the community who came out to pick up trash and paint curbs and speed bumps, employees from Wells Fargo Bank also volunteered for the day.
As with all Habitat for Humanity projects, there’s an opportunity to learn new skills…or to share your knowledge with someone. Fellowship is always a key ingredient.
In total, 30 volunteers brightened the community and improved the quality of life for all residents. Habitat for Humanity Prince William County is grateful to them all and to the community leaders in Georgetown Village who care so much about their neighborhood, Heidi O’Hare, HOA President, and property managers with CMS Management Services, Korie McGoldrick and Paula Miller. Volunteer Team Leaders for the day included David Gross, Tesfaye Abuye and Roberta McEachern. And much appreciation is given to the Dumfries Dunkin Donuts who provided fuel for the day with a wonderful donation of donuts, coffee and hot chocolate.
