Manchester Mayor Guinta's Office - Home Depot Manchester will Conduct Their Month of Service with the City's Weed and Seed Program

MANCHESTER (Sept. 24, 2008) – On Friday, September 26, 2008, Home Depot Manchester will be conducting their Month of Service in the city; in collaboration with the City Planning Departments’ Neighborhood Revitalization Project and Weed and Seed’s Neighborhood Restoration Committee. The company will be placing community planters around the city, filled with fall flora to brighten the neighborhoods and enhance our City’s green spaces. In addition, Home Depot will remove graffiti from the Adam D. Curtis Skate Park and along the Merrimack River Walk and Bridge, utilizing the newly donated power washer and supplies donated by the National Coalition for Graffiti Removal.

“This will be a great day of service for the Manchester community sponsored by a generous community partner,” Mayor Frank Guinta said. “These public-private partnerships are a boon to the city and will help enhance its quality-of-life.”

The planters will be maintained by local business partners such as C.A. Hoitt Furniture, Brothers Pizza, Kay’s Bakery, Pappy’s Pizza and Absolute Styling, as well as by several of the City’s Neighborhood Watch Groups. Home Depot will also be sprucing up identified areas in need of some gardening, with plants and trees.
