RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — Volunteers from Habitat for Humanity of Wake County, Lowe’s, and the Long Acres and Apollo Heights neighborhoods in Southeast Raleigh came together Saturday to help revitalize the neighborhoods.
The event culminated with a Harvest Festival for residents.
Volunteers made repairs on area homes. They also picked up trash and helped to clean up the neighborhoods. Roofs were repaired on a number of houses just in time for a rainy Saturday afternoon.
Lowe’s awarded Habitat for Humanity of Wake County a $40,000 grant to help with the projects.
After repairs were finished, neighborhood residents and volunteers gathered for some food and fun.
There was a bounce house for kids. Raleigh firefighters brought a firetruck for the children to see. Police officers stopped by to chat with residents as well.
