One Week One Street

The residents of Fulton Street were pleased to see a collaboration of groups working together to clean up and fix homes in their area. "One Week One Street" was a week-long project hosted in June, designed to help residents in the city of Saginaw. Close to 70 homes were impacted by the efforts of volunteers in the community by painting homes, cleaning debris and minor home repairs.


United Way of Saginaw County's Labor Liaison, Steven Lamb, recruited local union volunteers to help with this project, as well as provided tools from the United Way tool bank. Lamb said, "our volunteers were happy to be a part of 'One Week One Street'. This was a great project to showcase what volunteers can do for our community," added Lamb.
Given this opportunity labor volunteers were more than willing to get involved in any way possible. Carpenters Local 706 members repaired damaged porches on homes whille IBEW Local 557 members provided electrical work for the homes. UAW Local 699 members helped clean up debris, pain and even rebuild brick walls on the homes.
This event was coordinated by Tamara Klida and Pastor Roy Baldwin in an effort to help residents on Fulton Street. We would like to thank all the volunteers and organizations who gave their time to make this project possible.
