joinhandsdayitstartswithuslogoOn May 4th, Project: Save Bogalusa will take part in the National Join Hands Day of local volunteer activism by providing two Bogalusa residents with a property makeover for their home or business. Join Hands Day is an opportunity for youth and adults to work together improving their communities while enriching their own civic pride. We welcome all who want to take part in this community-wide event.

To nominate yourself, a neighbor, or a commercial property:

  • In 200 words or less, tell about the nominee and why they deserve a makeover.
  • Submit your nomination by the deadline of April 12, 2013.
  • Winners will be announced on April 20th at the Save Bogalusa Fish Fry, stay tuned to our Facebook page for details

A form is available here: NOMINATION FORM-Join Hands Day

Save Bogalusa will choose two winners from the nominations submitted.  One of the makeovers will be designated to a veteran, so please be sure to nominate our service men and women.

Selected winners will be subject to verification of current or past military service on behalf of the U.S. Additionally, winners must own the property inside the city limits of Bogalusa, or have written consent from the property owner to have work done, before services are provided. Services are limited to external repairs and beautification (gardens, exterior painting, etc.).
