A marathon home building project that gets underway next month in Farmington Hills comes with a neighborhood beautification effort that started Saturday.
According to a press release, volunteers with Life Remodeled, a local non-profit organization, are giving a “facelift” to the entire Olde Town neighborhood by beautifying properties and clearing out yard waste and debris. The nonprofit is sponsored by four area churches, including in Farmington Hills.
Life Remodeled will build a house at 21337 Rensselaer St., a property formerly owned by the city, during a six-day period from Aug. 6 through Aug. 12. The house will go to a family in need, who will be provided with life skills counseling, spiritual guidance, money management coaching, and home maintenance training.
Neighbors and community members are all welcome and encouraged to participate in the Olde Town spruce up project on these dates:
- Sunday, July 22 – 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, July 28 – 8 a.m. to noon
- Sunday, July 29 – 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
- Saturday, August 4 – 8 a.m. to noon
