Volunteers help ‘Spruce Up’ Sheridan Hollow


ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Members from the City of Albany and volunteers participated in the first annual “Spruce Up” event on Friday.

Local businesses and volunteers tackled  the Sheridan Hollow neighborhood.

The event was held to help revitalize the neighborhood with activities including painting, repairs, energy and playground improvements.

This project hits home for many of the members involved being able to improve their community.

“This is my neighborhood, I own a home here and to see volunteers come out, to see the homeowners, to see the people come out and just spruce up our neighborhood means a lot,” Jonathan Jones, Commissioner of Recreation and Youth Workforce Services, said.

This was the first “spruce up” project held. The City of Albany plans to hold one every spring and fall moving forward.
