United Way project nears completion

The GAP Project, sponsored by the United Way’s Day of Caring Committee, will be completed Aug. 15, with the installation of playground equipment at the Grand Avenue Apartments in Clovis.

Work will begin at 8 a.m. Other improvements will be made including laying of pea gravel and painting the railing around the grounds.

Twenty Lowe’s Heroes and other volunteers will do the work. Lowe’s is also donating $1,200 in supplies and materials.

El Desayuno Kiwanis donated $1,000 to the project.

Some $3,000 is still needed, according to Christina Martinez, chair of the Day of Caring Committee. Anyone wishing to donate to the project may call the United Way of Eastern New Mexico at 769-2103.
