Wake Up Walton Seeks Volunteers for Annual Cleanup Project

The students, faculty, and community of Walton and Verona are coming together once again this year on Saturday, May 7 to make a difference.

Now in its eighth year, Wake Up Walton has serviced the elderly community by successfully transforming their yards into beautiful, mulched, works of art ready for spring. The project has grown immensely in the past few years, taking on 50 homes each spring in collaboration with local businesses, churches, and volunteers. Student volunteers develop leadership skills while also creating meaningful relationships with the elderly community.

Breakfast will be served from 8:30-9:00 a.m. and teams will receive their assignments and conclude their work by noon.

Those interested in forming a team or making a donation to a great cause can contact Peggy Schutzman at 859-485-7721 or [email protected] or Heather Turner at [email protected].
