Unclaimed Baggage Center’s (UBC) Reclaimed for Good Foundation will be hosting a ‘Willow Street Serve Day’ this Saturday, Aug. 18, at a vacant rental property at 414 West Willow Street.

An elderly couple owns the property, but they are not able to do much of the work that needs to be done. There is debris that needs to be moved, groundwork that needs to be done, and basic cleanup on the property.

This will be Reclaimed for Good’s second workday of the year. The first was at the Scottsboro Boys Museum and Culture Center in May. The goal of Reclaimed for Good is to provide a helpful hand to business and private landowners to spruce up their property with a team of volunteers working together on a designated day to make an impact for that area. 

UBC is always looking for more volunteers to help with their cleanup days. Volunteers will meet on site at 7 am Saturday morning, and will work until 11 am or noon. They will provide t-shirts for volunteers to wear that day, water, snacks, gloves, a pressure washer, shovels, etc. They will need trucks and trailers, lawn equipment, weed eaters, hedge trimmers, chainsaws, and a lot of muscle.

Anyone planning on coming to volunteer on Saturday needs to let Brenda Cantrell know at bcantrell@unclaimedbaggage.com.
