Lauderhill Senior Gets Wish Granted with a Yard Makeover on Saturday
On Saturday morning, volunteers will grant the wish of a senior citizen living at in Lauderhill by giving her yard a makeover and her house, a fresh coat of paint.
The yard makeover wish is being granted by Global Village Impact, Kiwanis of Lauderhill, Lowes and National Theft Search & Recovery in collaboration with TD Bank, Renaissance Management Group and the Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce. “This is the perfect example how we can beautify our community with partnership support,” said initiative organizer and CEO of Global Village Impact Mr. Basile Phillips. “I am very excited and happy to know that these companies and their volunteers are going to help make my yard more beautiful just in time for Christmas,” the homeowner said. She lives with her son and grandchild. In addition to receiving the yard makeover, National Theft Search & Recovery is expected to provide the Lauderhill senior citizen with a check and TD Bank will offer her a $25 savings account. The Kiwanis of Lauderhill is giving her a decorated Christmas tree and presents to go underneath it. “We believe that it is possible to create change one family at a time,” Said Kiwanis of Lauderhill President Karrelle Chang. Immediately after the project has been completed, the senior citizen, her family, neighbors and volunteers will celebrate and fellowship together with a block party. “It is important for us to all work together to create a healthy, happy, and vibrant community; especially during the holiday season,” said Lauderhill Regional Chamber of Commerce President Melissa P. Dunn, MBA. Call 754-423-4673 to volunteer or drop off a gift for the Lauderhill senior citizen and her family.
