THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - For one upcoming October morning, an entire community will come together. "There's volunteer projects going on all the time, but to have a big day like this and to get people oh wow did you do Thomas County Day. That's a cool feeling," said Thomasville Landmarks Program Director Mark Santos.
The Eighth Annual Hands on Thomas County Day is next Saturday, October 22nd.
Local civic organizations, clubs, businesses, churches, and individuals are asked and encouraged to spend three hours in service.
Thomasville Landmarks will be repainting two historic homes. "One's a really big house. A 1920's house and we're just repainting the whole thing. The same with a 1900's Craftsman bungalow," said Santos.
Santos says the economy has been anything but kind to non-profits. "There's only so many donors in the world and in Thomas County. It is getting a little bit harder and so these kind of events help that as well and bring awareness, but it also forces some collaborative efforts as well."
Other projects include picking up trash, building houses, feeding abandoned animals, and general county beautification.
For more information or to register call Hands on Thomas County at 226-5200. The last day to register is Monday.
