LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - Since 2008 Lehigh Acres has been struggling with the collapse of the housing market. This weekend organizations from all over Lehigh came out to show what the community is all about.
Two volunteers Cassandra and Sarah are still in High School, but they tell Fox 4 they're already getting involved.
"we're out here painting faces, and giving hay rides to support our Key club. And we're letting kids paint pumpkins"
"its good seeing our community come together and do something great"
Andrea Adams helped oragnize Make a Difference Day, and in its second year she tells us what Sarah and Cassandra are doing is exactly what she envisioned.
"to community beautification projects, cleanups in neighborhoods that are blight to remove the blight from the neighborhood, but the key is to get the neighbors participating and meeting their neighbors to get that true community feel"
