Volunteers Ready For Salina Fall Fix-Up

KSAL StaffOctober 1, 2015

Volunteers will gather Saturday morning to help make Salina a better place to live. People of all ages are ready to roll up their sleeves and tackle a variety of community service projects during the annual Fall Fix-Up project.

The event is coordinated by the Volunteer Connection. Activities will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Shelter # 1 in Kenwood Park (near the locomotive) with volunteer check-in, a light breakfast and project orientation.

Projects will include smoke detector installation, Smoky Hill River Cleanup and landscaping of three public areas in North Salina.

The Smoke detector installation project is in partnership with the American Red Cross’ Home Fire Preparedness Campaign. Teams of volunteers will canvass designated neighborhoods to install smoke detectors and/or replace batteries in existing detectors, as needed. Fire safety education will also be provided to residents, including assistance with developing a fire escape plan. Bilingual volunteers who speak Spanish are especially needed for this activity.

The Smoky Hill River Cleanup crews will remove trash and invasive vegetation from the banks of the Smoky Hill River along a designated area. Gloves, sunscreen, insect repellent, long pants and closed-toe shoes are strongly recommended.

To become a volunteer, contact The Volunteer Connection at 785-823-3128 or email [email protected]
