NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, Develop North Adams and the City of North Adams announced that the 20th annual Community Day of Service will take place on Saturday, May 5, starting with registration and a continental breakfast at 9:30 a.m. in the lower level of the MCLA Church Street Center.
Community members spent four hours doing work around town, which included spicing up the downtown sidewalks.
Participants then will depart into the community in teams to tackle various clean-up assignments and improvement projects.
Volunteers will return to MCLA’s Church Street Center at about 2 p.m. for pizza and other refreshments, provided by MCLA, ARAMARK, Develop North Adams and local restaurants.
Although many of the teams will use their own transportation, some of the volunteers will be transported to sites in vehicles provided by Dufor Bus, MCLA, North Adams Public Schools, BerkshireRides and the City of North Adams.
Trucks and supplies will be provided by Killian Flynn and Allied Waste, Paul Markland and the North Adams DPW and McAndrews-King Buick GMC.
