On April 28, Diamond Bar residents from all corners of the city will gather at Ronald Reagan Park for the annual Community Helping Hands event.
Organized by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and in cooperation with the city, all members of the community are welcome to participate from 8 a.m. to around noon.
“If we get a large turnout, we may be finished before noon,” said Charla Spence, community services representative for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Diamond Bar.
Participants will be working on a painting project at the park.
“Anyone over the age of 12 can help,” said Spence. “It’s a great family event for giving back to the community.”
Helping Hands Day began in South America in 1998, and events will be held in other cities the same day. Last year, about 50 volunteers helped with the Diamond Bar project.
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Diamond Bar is organizing the event, but we are hopeful those of other faiths or service interests will join us for the betterment of our beautiful city,” Spence said.
Ronald Reagan Park is at 2201 Peacefull Hills Road, Diamond Bar.
