Addressing Mesquite Day (AMD)
14th Annual Addressing Mesquite Day
The Mesquite Ministerial Alliance and the City of Mesquite’s 14th Annual Addressing Mesquite Day will be held on Saturday, October 6, 2018. Last year, City staff and Councilmembers teamed with clubs, businesses, civic and faith-based organizations to make exterior repairs to 98 homes. More than 1,100 volunteers participated. This annual one-day event focuses on home repairs needed by senior citizens, single parents, military veterans, and disabled homeowners in Mesquite. Area businesses also provided $50,000 in monetary and in-kind donations to assist with the event. There are three ways you can be involved:
TO SPONSOR OR DONATE:

Do you or someone you know need some extra assistance with house or yard projects? We’d like to help! This event matches community volunteer groups with qualifying homeowners in Mesquite that are in need of extra assistance with qualifying projects. All requests must be for EXTERIOR projects only. Some of the projects could include: painting the outside of a home, landscaping tasks, constructing minor structures (such as a ramp, etc.) and tearing down structures (such as an old shed).
If you are a homeowner (and reside in the home), you may submit your home for consideration by submitting a completed Job Request Form before the deadline of June 29, 2018.
