“Any teenagers or adults are welcome to come and help out,” said Lewis. “We’ve spread this project by word of mouth and hope to see as many people there as possible.”

The Butler County Georgiana Family Life Center, which recently learned it could lease the old Robert L. Austin Elementary School, is planning on including two phases for its opening. The first phase is to become a small business incubator for Georgiana. The building is also being renovated to be used as a soup kitchen, emergency shelter, and open space for family reunions. The second phase is to open a resource center, computer center and tech club.

“This is a huge addition to our community and we can’t wait to finally begin the first phase of the Butler County Georgiana Family Life Center, so we encourage any volunteers to come out and help out with the process of cleaning up,” said Lewis.

The goal for the community cleanup is to prepare for the grand opening of the Butler County Family Life Center. The cleanup project includes painting, distributing and installing safety precautions throughout the building, sweeping, moving large items, etc.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 8 a.m. For more information, contact Lewis at (334) 453-3152 or Nina Bonner at (334) 453-8315.
