FFC recruits volunteers for Comcast Cares Day!

Every year during Comcast Cares Day, volunteers gather at a public location to give back to the community by planting gardens, beautifying schools, and providing technology setup to community centers. This Saturday, April 27, 2013 from 7am to 1pm, volunteers will come together to beautify Waukegan High School and Madeleine Fuqua Waukegan Community Garden!!!

Several institutions have worked to organize this event, including Family First Center of Lake County, CeasefireGreen Town Waukegan, F.I.S.T., Townline Design, Landscape Concepts Management, Wild Ones, and more.

Volunteers are invited to meet on the third floor of the FFC Building at 202 S. Genessee Street, Waukegan 60085 for a free continental breakfast, to register, and to pick up their free T-shirt at 7am. Around 8am, volunteers will carpool with one another to the site that they chose to serve. Volunteers at the Waukegan High School can expect to do some minor school grounds gardening, touch-up painting, and refurbishing of bulletin boards. Volunteers for the Community Garden can expect to do more gardening and general clean-up. We encourage volunteers to wear clothes that they do not mind getting dirty. A free lunch will also be provided.

If you would like to sign up and have not yet, you can do it online or in person on the second floor of the FFC Building. Come support your community, lend a helping hand, and socialize with community-carers like you! For those who cannot make it, we will post pictures of this special day to show our volunteer effort :)
