Volunteers from The Home Depot and Park Pride teamed up recently with the DeKalb County Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs to enhance Little Creek Horse Farm.
More than 150 volunteers completed projects that included repairing fences, removing debris and vegetation, constructing picnic tables and repairing wheelchair accessible ramps. Little Creek Horse Farm is a DeKalb County facility, which through a partnership with Little Creek Farm Conservancy, offers community equine education and safety programs.
“The county is extremely grateful for the support and engagement from volunteers such as The Home Depot and Park Pride,” said Marvin Billups Jr., interim director of DeKalb County Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs. “Volunteers are essential to making sure that special projects are completed and aid the county in improving the quality of life for all residents.”
On this project, Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs volunteers collectively worked nearly 800 hours, totaling $18,255 in department savings.
