More than 125 Habitat for Humanity volunteers helped spruce up Front Street during Lenawee United Way’s Day of Action, playing their part in a large-scale neighborhood revitalization effort that aims to improve Adrian and boost community pride.

Habitat for Humanity of Lenawee County coordinated efforts to demolish a garage, paint an entire house, install a handrail, remove overgrowth from curbs and sideways, paint house numbers on the curbs, mend a foundation, paint a fence and landscape a yard at five homes on Front Street, according to a news release.

The Lenawee United Way Day of Action was Friday, Sept. 19.

Businesses and organizations that provided volunteers included Foundation Realty, Clever Ideas Marketing, Midwest Energy Cooperative, the JC/LISD Academy, the Lenawee United Way Emerging Leaders program, Brazeway, and Adrian Morning Rotary.
