Volunteers Work to Beautify Georgetown South
As part of the
17th Annual Comcast
Cares Day on April
21, a group of more
than 200 volunteers
representing Comcast
and the Leadership
Prince William Class of
2018 spent five hours
working to improve
the Georgetown
South neighborhood.
Armed with shovels,
paintbrushes, drills,
and rakes, the volunteers completed a long
list of beautification and safety-improvement
projects such as spreading mulch, prepping
the community vegetable garden, and installing
house numbers in visible locations for every
resident. This last project will enable emergency
responders to locate houses more quickly.
The massive revitalization effort also included
a special gift to the community in recognition
of their overwhelmingly Spanish-speaking
residents--a large AMOR sign, similar to the
LOVE signs seen at various tourist locations
across Virginia.
