NILES, Ohio (WYTV) – The Movement is hosting its second annual Love Week starting Monday and will do various projects to help “spread the love.”
Last year, organizers served over 1,300 hours in the city of Warren with 200 volunteers. This year, they are hoping to do well over 2,000 hours with at least 300 volunteers.
The first project will be A Place to Call Home in Niles. On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, volunteers will be teaming up with one of the Movement families to help them create a new home specifically designed to house aging out foster children. This safe haven for these new adults will help them to learn important life skills before starting out on their own. There will be a number of different projects happening, including construction, painting and landscaping.
Another project will be Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership Projects in Warren. This organization is doing so much to help revitalize Warren and volunteers will partner with them on several different projects thoughout the week. There are several different garden cleanups all over the city of Warren and volunteers also will be repainting the exterior of a home.
Trumbull Family Fitness Kid’s Club in Warren. All the volunteers that served last year at the Kid’s Club every morning were so excited to repeat this project again this year.
Warren City Block Party and Robin’s Theater Family Movie Night will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday at the Movement Warren City Campus. Afterwards, join volunteers at the Warren Community Ampitheatre at 7 p.m. for musical entertainment by Hey Kid! and a viewing of the film Big Hero Six.
