"CAP Program" seeking volunteers for spring & summer projects

The Knox Hill "CAP " Community Appearance Project is looking for Volunteers to do small improvement projects this  Spring and Summer.

CAP is a great way for individuals to get involved in community projects but its "small stuff" that you can do in a couple of hours that has big impact on  the community. The purpose of CAP is to do small scale community appearance projects that could range from flower planting  to painting picket fencing to more involved 'group projects' like donating an afternoon to one of our Save not Raze projects and maybe cutting weeds and clearing lots.

Getting involved in Cap is simple, if you are an individual you can choose from a 'honey do" list of small projects like flower planting, cleaning out street gutters, helping a senior with yard work. If you are involved in a church group, a business, or have group of friends you might choose a bigger project like landscaping the first 5 feet of a vacant lot  which discourages dumping. Or maybe even a tree planting event. We are also looking for corporations to donate  materials like mulch, paint and flowers to CAP projects.

If this sounds like something you'd like to be involved in contact me at victiques@gmail.com about how to get involved or set up a CAP project for your group or business to work in Knox Hill.
