Wynnewood Heights' Celebration of Hope was very impressive. About 50 to 60 volunteers from the surrounding neighborhood turned out, including some expertise generously provided by Home Depot. Seven homes were painted for families who were unable to do so themselves, as well as additional landscaping that was added to the traffic triangle at Llewellyn and Saner.

It was an incredibe day's work! with amazing results.
