Approximately 175 volunteers from the Jordan neighborhood, the Pohlad Foundation, Catalyst, and many other partners are converging on the Glengale Park for a community beautification project today. Volunteers will be landscaping, building retaining walls, and doing some painting at people's homes.
All of this started at the break of dawn, and dedicated residents and volunteers will be working in Jordan all day. Other partners to be thanked include The Ackerberg Group, the city of Minneapolis, Glengale Park residents, Neighborhood Housing Services, the Northside Home Fund, RJM Construction (these are the experts who are directing the volunteers), Urban Homeworks, Minnesota Internship Center at Unity House, and NAIOP (Commercial Real Estate Development Association).
If you make it over there to do some work yourself, you just might get one of those snazzy yellow t-shirts too.
