Decatur service project needs volunteers

The group, in partnership with the city, will fix up a dozen homes of elderly residents between Jan. 16 and 18. Yard work will be done at another two dozen homes.

More than 1,200 volunteers showed up for last year’s effort, providing everything from materials to skilled carpentry work to gardening.
