|Cleaning up Woodlawn / McClean Ave|
This initiative will involve a consortium of community organizations and volunteers getting together for one day to give the Woodlawn/McLean Avenue neighborhood a “spring clean”. We also encourage people to go out that day and do up their own yards as well as helping their neighbors including the elderly, single moms, etc clean their yards.
The AOH Division One Yonkers members will be available on the day to help in anyway necessary including making basic repairs or improvements OUTSIDE the home. People would need to sign up for this earlier and should call the Aisling Irish Community Center at 914-237-5121. If you know of anyone who would like plants or shrubs planted in their garden (purchased ahead of time), this will be done by adolescents living in the neighborhood who will do this with adult supervision.
This is not only to help our neighborhood look cleaner but to pull together as a community to assist it in looking better and to take some pride in it. Please call Aisling Irish Community Center at 914-237-5121 if you would like to get involved in “Extreme Makeover – Neighborhood Edition” on Saturday, May 11th, 2013 or if you would like some help with your own home/garden or if you have an elderly neighbor who would appreciate a helping hand or some “green fingers” to get their garden or the exterior of the home in shape for spring.
