LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Two historic La Crosse neighborhoods are getting a makeover this summer.
The ReNEW La Crosse program is planning to complete 35 projects in the Powell-Poage-Hamilton, and Washburn neighborhoods.
The program, put on by Habitat for Humanity, partners residents with local agencies, non-profits and businesses to help revitalize area neighborhoods.
Residents apply through the Renew program to have volunteers work on their property.
Projects include simple repairs, painting, and even some landscaping.
Organizers say to make the program successful, they need residents to apply. "Our main focus right now is to get our applications in so we have projects for our volunteers to do," said Amanda Acklin, Executive Director of the La Crosse Habitat for Humanity.
Last year, volunteers worked on more than 40 properties in La Crosse.
Applications for home repairs and other services are due March 21. For more information contact David Dobbs at (608) 799-2716 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
