Volunteers are being sought for Sunbury Community Service Day on Saturday, May 7.

The project centers on volunteers lending helping hands to senior citizens and others in the community.

Senior citizens and others in need of assistance are requesting some helping hands for a few hours with various spring projects. "Typically, about 150 volunteers from various communities throughout the county gather for this annual morning of helping others," explains event chair Susan Dulin. "The majority of this year's requests are coming from the senior citizens and we want to be able to help every single one of them."

Small volunteer teams of two to three individuals tackle a wide range of work projects, such as inside housework (cleaning, painting, minor repairs), yard work, gardening, window washing and litter control.

Community Service Day will begin at 8 a.m. with a light breakfast. Volunteers will convene at the Sunbury Christian Church, 250 Rainbow Ave. in Sunbury. Work projects will be completed between 8:30 a.m. and noon, with lunch for the volunteers concluding by 1 p.m.

To volunteer, please call Dulin at (740) 548-3200 or Cindy Hall at the Big Walnut Area Chamber of Commerce at (740) 965-2860. Please provide your name and phone number, For sign up forms visit SunburyBigWalnutChamber.com/News.
