Nnn Logo Fritz Schemel

Sponsored by Near Northwest Neighborhood and Monroe Park Neighborhood Association

Location: Near Northwest Neighborhood and Monroe Park Neighborhood

The 3rd annual Keep the Lead Away Project will give students the opportunity to work on a key social concerns issue in the community. South Bend has some of the highest lead concentration levels in the country, largely in the soil where children play. Students will put mulch over exposed soil to prevent lead exposure. Check out this South Bend Tribune article about the project.

Number of Volunteers Needed: 80 - 100
