2018 West Michigan Russ Mawby Signature Service Project:
AmeriCorps members made a significant and widespread impact in communities across the state during six regional Russ Mawby Signature Service Projects in May.
The Regional Russ Mawby Signature Service Projects bring hundreds of AmeriCorps members to various Michigan communities for a day of intensive service. By the end of the day, several projects are completed, visibly demonstrating the power of Michigan's AmeriCorps members in action.
This years West Michigan Russ Mawby Signature Service Project was held in our very own Muskegon Heights community. Approximately 130 AmeriCorps members served at this Signature Service Project to improve vacant lots and homes in Muskegon Heights on Friday, May 18. The following projects were completed by AmeriCorps members through the Land Bank Authority: cleared overgrown lots of garbage and shrubbery, cleared homes of garbage, trimmed trees and hedges, cleared curbs/gutters. This ultimately helps create clean lines of sight for officers and neighbors to improve public safety.
