Love Week is an annual tradition in Lowell. It’s a time for people to join together and tackle various community projects.
This year, Impact Church and First Baptist Church of Lowell teamed up to work at 29 sites that included parks, schools and non-profits. They even spread the love as far as Saranac where a crew worked at Saranac Community Schools.
Event coordinator Bob Rogers says a final tally on the number of volunteer hours won’t be available until July, but here’s a look at some of last week’s Love Week activities. All photos are courtesy of Rogers, Impact Church and project volunteers.
Volunteers took on some unruly bushes at Saranac Community Schools, and that was just one of many school-based projects.
The schools are a major beneficiary of Love Week activities with crews heading to the administration building, all four Lowell elementary schools, the high school and Curiosity Corner Preschool as well as Saranac Community Schools.
Volunteers also step up to help various non-profits. This group was at the Fallasburg Historic Village where working on the barn and along area trails were on the agenda.
FROM can also count on Love Week sending some volunteers its way. It’s not often that you get to pull out the jackhammer, and these guys made short work of some old concrete at FROM’s Main Street housing project.
For those seeking a less intense experience, there was painting to be done at Senior Neighbors.
There were activities for all ages as some volunteers went to the dog park…
…others cleaned up at Lowell Township’s Riverfront Park…
…and the Showboat windows shone a little brighter after volunteers finished cleaning them.
Thank you Love Week volunteers!
