Volunteers are needed to help spruce up schools for the coming year. Bay-Waveland Habitat for Humanity has teamed with South Hancock Elementary School and Bay High School to host a Community Day in Hancock County on July 16.
"We'll be painting and decorating our classrooms to help our students feel that school is a happy, fun place to be," said Jenny Seymour, incoming Principal at South Hancock Elementary.
"Volunteers are vital in helping us complete those final projects, so that we're ready when that first bell rings in the fall," said Andy Parker, principal at Bay High School.
Habitat will be organizing volunteers and supervising the work, which will be mostly painting and light landscaping.
"Building affordable, energy efficient houses is our specialty," said Wendy McDonald, Bay-Waveland Habitat's Executive Director. "But we're looking forward to working on these schools because they're a community resource that directly affects so many people in our area."
There is no cost to participate and the first 100 volunteers to register will receive a free t-shirt at the event. A free lunch will also be served.
