Madison Day

Volunteers completed 19 projects on Madison Day.

Over 200 volunteers braved the colder than normal temperatures and light rain to work on 19 projects for local residents during this year’s Madison Day.

Madison Day was created in 2019 as a way for neighbors to help neighbors. The community service day, which is held annually on the first Saturday in May, pairs groups of volunteers with residents or non-profits that need maintenance or repair work.

According to organized Karen Coppage, projects are selected based on need with with an emphasis on safety.

“We work with MESA, Social Services and some word of mouth. We go by warmer, dryer, safer as our guidelines,” said Coppage. “We’ll also do other small things needed around the house we’re working on. Each year it seems like we work on a lot of widow’s homes. Their husbands pass away and they struggle to get repairs done, ability wise and cost wise.”

This was the third Madison Day as the annual event was postponed in 2020 because of the pandemic.
