“This years Day of Service looks and feels quite a bit different than previous years. Ordinarily right now I’ll be out with you in the chilly weather, cleaning up an empty lot, doing repairs to a childcare center, feeding members of our community who are experiencing homelessness, or doing an art project to beautify one of our neighborhoods,” said Chattanooga Mayor Andy Burke
Projects have included clean up at the Historic Beck Knob Cemetery, painting and cleaning of local childcare centers, and more.
