Habitat hosting Neighbors Day in La Crosse this weekend, providing help for others in community



They can always use more volunteers.

Habitat for Humanity of the La Crosse Area is preparing for its yearly Neighbors Day on Saturday.

Kahya Fox, the executive director for the local Habitat office, expects hundreds of people to volunteer for cleanup work at homes around the area.

She joined WIZM’s La Crosse Talk on Tuesday.

The teams will meet at Myrick Park at 8 a.m. for a breakfast, and each team will have two or three projects to complete during the day.

Fox urges folks to get family and friends together to help out with the neighborhood jobs this Saturday.

“We partner with the city of La Crosse, who pulls together maps for us,” Fox told WIZM’s Mike Hayes. “We assign projects based on the size of the team, and the different types of people that are gonna be a part of that team, and usually people will get two or three projects for the day.”

“They come in, we feed them breakfast, we feed ’em lunch,” she says. The jobs generally are done by about 3 p.m., and can range from washing windows to gardening.

The volunteer workers will gather at the Nature Place in Myrick Park on Saturday to get their assignments.
