Volunteers come together to help tenants, property owners

-

November 19, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — Eight homeowners and more than 120 residents of a multi-family senior complex will receive landscape and home maintenance assistance this Saturday, Nov. 20. The effort is a partnership between the city’s Code Cares program, local churches and the non-profit group Arizona City Fest.

More than 120 volunteers will assist with a variety of needs, including tree trimming, lawn maintenance, planting, gravel installation, painting and general cleanup.

The homeowners and tenants were selected based on a need for services they are unable to provide themselves due to health or financial reasons.

Scottsdale’s Code Cares program was established roughly a year ago to provide such assistance by coordinating volunteer groups and businesses willing to donate services.

Similarly, Arizona City Fest is a non-profit organization embarked on a program called “Season of Service” to link service providers with those in need of service.

Saturday’s maintenance activities will feature volunteers from two Scottsdale churches — Highlands Church and North Bible Church.

“This is a great example of community groups, city staff and volunteers coming together to assist those in need,” said Malcolm Hankins, Scottsdale’s code enforcement manager. “Scottsdale residents share a strong sense of community and this project is another example of their care and compassion.”
