Projects celebrate neighbors helping neighbors

Build a playground or a greenhouse, decorate birdhouses and bird feeders

By Special to the Monitor

If you like to build things, work outdoors and want to make a difference in the lives of others, then you’re just the kind of volunteer the National Make A Difference Day wants. Three projects are being coordinated by the Community Programs Office and are part of the Lab’s 2010 “Growing Our Communities” employee-giving campaign.

Projects are planned in Los Alamos and Española and Santa Fe on Oct. 23-24. Lab employees, family members, contractors and retirees can sign up for the projects from the employee-giving campaign Web page. Participants will be required to sign a liability release waiver. For volunteers under the age of 18, parents will have to participate with them and sign the waiver.

 National Make A Difference Day is a national celebration of neighbors helping neighbors and accomplishing projects large and small across the United States.

At the Lab, you can sign up to build a playground and remodel the visitation center at the New Mexico Children, Youth and Families Department and Court Appointed Special Advocates office in Española; build a greenhouse at Casa Mesita Group Home in Los Alamos; or assemble and decorate birdhouses and bird feeders for the United Way of Santa Fe County’s Children’s Project. The Santa Fe project is at Kaune Elementary School, 1409 Monterey Drive.
