Saturday, October 23, 2021

The Town of Wake Forest, the Northeast Community Coalition, Rebuilding Together for the Triangle, and a network of community partners are recruiting volunteers of all ages for “Make a Difference Day - Northeast Neighborhood Renewal” on Saturday, Oct. 23, at Taylor Street Park, 416 N. Taylor St.

Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m.-noon to help perform a range of tasks throughout the Northeast Community, including litter pickup, leaf sweeping and collection, storm drain stenciling, bulk waste removal, painting, gutter cleaning and more.

Local civic groups and community organizations are especially encouraged to participate. “Make a Difference Day” is also a great opportunity for local students to earn community service hours.

Please Register to Volunteer
