On February 15, 2019, staff members from the Chesterfield County Technical Center, volunteered their time to assist a couple of the county seniors with some needed yard maintenance and minor repairs. Giving back to the community in this fashion provides rewards not only for the recipients, but those volunteers walked away with a sense of pride in helping our county seniors. This Work Day was a direct result of a budding partnership with the Chesterfield Council on Aging Senior Home Services committee, and the County's Aging & Disability Service and Community Enhancement departments. We'd like to recognize and thank those staff members for their efforts in improving the lives of our county seniors.
Bensley area residents partnered with Community Enhancement Department employees and Amazon volunteers to complete a community wide cleanup. The results were the removal of unwanted household items from over 800 homes in the area. We’d like to recognize this hard work by these residents and volunteers.
Kingsland Baptist Church volunteers completed a fencing repair project for a county Senior. Debris behind the privacy fencing had deteriorated the fence and supports. Volunteers cleaned the brush from behind the fence, replaced four sections of fencing including a new gate, and removed a debris pile (concrete and rocks) in the back yard. We’d like to recognize and thank these volunteers.
