On Oct. 25, a group of Eastmark residents joined 1,600 other Mesa volunteers in National Make a Difference Day coordinated through the city of Mesa. The volunteers helped complete more than 50 neighborhood beautification and cleanup projects across town.
Eastmark residents helped by assembling and distributing 284 resource bags containing useful information about city-related programs and services to residents in the Desert Sands North community at Sossaman Road and Southern Avenue.
Make a Difference Day is the nation’s largest day of community service where millions of volunteers from across the nation unite in a common mission to improve the lives of others.
“Eastmark is proud to be part of the greater Mesa community,” said Community Engagement Manager Kimberly Crowther Miller. “Make a Difference Day was the perfect opportunity to demonstrate that sense of pride by helping another Mesa neighborhood.”
In addition to a robust calendar of programs and events, volunteer activities are another way in which Eastmark residents can connect to one another and their community. As Eastmark grows, so will its service and philanthropic program offerings.
Special thanks to Leighanne Mayr, Yvette Bishop, and Yvonne Powell for assembling neighborhood resource bags; and Gavin Schmitt, Samanatha Pacifico, Patrick Pacifico, and Greg Sneed for delivering the resource bags.
