Blount Center Will Help To “Keep it Pleasant” During June 10 Event

Volunteers from the Blount Center will be participating in the Pleasant Street NeighborWorks event.

“Keep it Pleasant!” is a community service project dedicated to preserving and promoting the Pleasant Street Historic District and will take place on Friday, June 10, from 9 a.m.-1 pm. NHDC canvased the area and identified five homes seeking painting and landscaping repairs. NHDC is partnering with the Gainesville CRA to supply paint and painting supplies through its Residential Paint Voucher Program. The number of projects able to be completed is dependent on the number of volunteers able to secure. Completed projects will be showcased during the final event, “Pleasant in the Park”.

If you are interested in more information on the five homes and/or families, volunteer opportunities, or have landscaping materials to donate, please contact Kayla Ellsworth at 352-380-9119.

Special thanks to the City of Gainesville Planning Division for assisting in the planning of this event..
