Cleveland Clinic South Pointe Hospital hosted another successful “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” community beautification event.

On Tuesday, June 4, caregivers teamed up with Aramark, Infinity Construction and Warrensville Heights City Council Member Andrea Mitchell to clean up the yards of homes in the hospital's surrounding area. 

Nearly 60 volunteers donated their time and performed light landscaping work on 50 homes in the Friendly City. They pruned tree branches and bushes, pulled weeds, mowed lawns, planted flowers and laid fresh mulch.

The “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” initiative was started in 2010 to support senior residents who were unable to do the physical labor required to maintain their yards.

Mageree S., a retired grandmother who has lived in the area for five years, is grateful for the helping hand.

“The volunteers who came to my home were so kind and did an amazing job,” said Margaree. “I took before and after photos. Everything looks beautiful. Their kindness and hard work mean so much to me."
