Mesquite, TX – September 24, 2020 – The City of Mesquite thanked Addressing Mesquite Day (AMD) Platinum Sponsors at Municipal Center. Jonathan Fredi of Atmos Energy and Mary Bradford of The Home Depot Foundation were presented sponsor plaques by District 5 Councilmember B.W. Smith and City Manager Cliff Keheley as part of a brief ceremony. Sponsors like Atmos Energy and The Home Depot are critical to this program.
This year, AMD will feature dozens of volunteer teams going to homes throughout the community to help the homeowners with minor exterior projects and landscape projects. Due to the current pandemic, the volunteer projects will be completed with special health guidelines and protocol.
Started in 2005, the one-day event provides assistance to qualifying homeowners with minor landscaping and exterior home repairs. To date, the Addressing Mesquite Day program has helped more than 1,000 homeowners in Mesquite.
Addressing Mesquite Day has spun-off into Helping Others in Mesquite Everyday (HOME). It is an initiative to support neighborhood revitalization and redevelopment in the Mesquite community. HOME embraces the spirit of the highly successful Addressing Mesquite Day on a continuous basis. HOME is made possible through a collaborative partnership between Keep Mesquite Beautiful, the City of Mesquite and community volunteers.
