Spring Into Service volunteers needed

Community Thread's fourth annual Spring Into Service event is scheduled at several locations from 9 a.m.-noon Saturday, May 5. Volunteers are still needed to help.

So far, over 275 volunteers will complete service projects at 16 local nonprofit organizations. Projects include painting, landscaping, tree planting, spring clean-up, gardening, office projects and more.

Locations include Stillwater, Marine on St. Croix, White Bear Lake, Vadnais Heights, Hudson, Hastings and Cottage Grove. When participants sign up, they can request to be placed at a particular site, or the organization will assign volunteers to sites based on geographic location, size of group and other factors.

A free appreciation lunch follows the event.
