The organization 500 Men Making a Difference is asking for volunteers to help them as they clean and paint Von King Park in Brooklyn Saturday, July 18.

Work being done at the park is general cleaning, painting and maintenance. The work is part of 500 Men’s civic projects initiative that seeks to improve the community with tangible results by participating in civic building and renovation projects.

Young men in 500 Men’s mentorship program are participating in the project, which provides an opportunity for the mentees to work alongside their mentors and other men.

To participate or donate, email Wayne Devonish at wmdkaos@aol.com or call 917-297-2365.
