Volunteer for SWEEP! today!

On Saturday, May 1, 2010, more than 300 volunteers will "sweep" through the neighborhood and perform repairs and maintenance on seniors homes. Get out your paint brush and yard gloves for a special day of service in Atlanta! Lunch will be provided.

Mrs. Duncon moved into her home 42 years ago with her husband and three sons. They lived in an apartment until the opportunity became available to purchase her home in the English Avenue neighborhood. They loved the quiet neighborhood with lots of seniors when they moved in before all the apartments started going up around them in the 1970’s. Her husband passed away in 1991.

Mrs. Duncon was born in Alabama and moved to Atlanta when she was 14 years old. She is now 79 years old and worked as a domestic worker her entire life until she retired in the 1970’s.

Mrs. Duncon is no longer able to keep up with the repairs that are needed on her home. Please volunteer today and make a difference in a senior's life.

Volunteer here!
