Last month, hundreds of volunteers from The Serve Project at Eastview Christian Church spent their time and effort at a number of work sites around Bloomington-Normal. Among these locations were seven of Bloomington’s public housing sites. Serve Project volunteers of all ages enhanced these sites with landscaping improvements, tree planting, bench installation, brush removal, and playground maintenance.
Housing Authority residents, staff, and commissioners wish to thank each and every volunteer for their outstanding work this year. The Serve Project has once again made our public housing sites more attractive and welcoming. These beautification efforts are a fine example of the positive impact our faith communities and civic organizations have on everyday life in Bloomington-Normal. Keep up the great work!
