Usually the work is too much to handle and the volunteers are low in numbers.

This year it is extending the application process back to mid-June to get more work. Sign up here.

Projects people in the lower Northside Depot neighborhood can sign up for to be completed by ReNew volunteers include landscaping, yard cleanup and painting.
