ReNew La Crosse Neighborhoods 2019 (Revitalizing Neighborhood Empowerment With La Crosse Neighborhoods) and Habitat for Humanity La Crosse Area would like to thank residents in the Lower Northside and Depot, and Logan Northside Neighborhoods and community volunteers for their efforts to make these historic neighborhoods even better places to live, work and play.

During the five weekends in June, over 75 ReNEW volunteers will provide over 500 volunteer hours assisting local housing and community development programs, including the City of La Crosse, Couleecap, La Crosse County, Mayo Health System and Gundersen Health System, to help improve the overall appearance of the Lower Northside and Depot and Logan Northside Neighborhoods. Volunteers will assist over 30 homeowners in these neighborhoods with various home improvement projects such as landscaping, painting, and small home repairs. The ReNEW program will also work with volunteers to complete art and community improvement projects in these neighborhoods.

June 29th marks the final weekend of ReNEW 2019, which will culminate in a giant Block Party Celebration for neighbors and volunteers. Free food, games, music, and more will be on hand to help commemorate the amazing efforts and provide an opportunity for neighbors to come together to meet, socialize, and get to know one another. This event is sponsored by the La Crosse Loggers, and will include hot dogs, the Logger Mascot, a pitching game, and Logger players on hand for autographs. The entire community is welcome to come and help us celebrate.

Habitat for Humanity will also be drawing a winner for the “Hot Rod for Habitat” 1953 Chevy Pickup at 2 pm as part of the Block Party celebration. Only a small handful of raffle tickets are still available at area retailers, including the Habitat ReStore, Pearl Street Brewery, BA Burrito, Rudy’s Drive-In, Pischke Motors, and the Briar Patch Tobacco Shop. Tickets will be on sale until Friday, June 28th. Raffle ticket holders do not need to be present to win.

ReNEW is still looking for volunteers for the final Saturday of ReNEW. To sign up to volunteer, please go to renewlacrosse.org. ReNEW is a family friendly volunteer program.  

If you would like more information about ReNEW or to learn how you can become involved, please visit our website at renewlacrosse.org or contact Kahya Fox, Executive Director at 608-785-2373 or exdirector@habitatlacrosse.org.
