The City of Coral Springs has received a grant from the Community Foundation of Broward to create a city service plan to engage our newly retired citizens.
As part of the Community Foundation's Re-engage for Good: City Challenge program, Coral Springs will use the grant to involve newly retired citizens to coordinate volunteers and assist the City in meeting its goal of beautifying the community and set precedents for a cleaner City.
Re-engage for Good: City Challenge is a new program that aims to create and/or strengthen sustainable connector systems within Broward cities to help retired baby boomers find meaningful ways to give back to their communities in retirement.
“Coral Springs is reaching out to our community to engage our newly retired citizens in helping address our City aesthetics and we look forward to working with them to keep our City clean and beautiful,” Mayor Vince Boccard said.
To volunteer, fill out the forms available at www.CoralSprings.org/volunteer. For more information, please call 954-346-4430.
