Big "THANK YOU" for Lakewood Day of Service
On Sept. 11, more than 250 community volunteers teamed up and fanned out to 13 sites throughout Lakewood. They worked together to lend a hand to neighbors in honor of the National Day of Service commemorating the 20th anniversary of the events of Sept. 11, 2001.
"On behalf of the City Council and residents of Lakewood, I want to thank everyone who helped out on this year's special Lakewood Day of Service," said Mayor Jeff Wood. "The volunteer spirit in Lakewood is a big part of what makes us a strong, caring community."
Those helped by the volunteers included disabled, senior and other Lakewood neighbors who, due to physical or economic hardship, were unable to take care of the difficult circumstances their property faced.
