“We began Safety Days last year and it was a great success. We look forward to another productive day this Saturday,” Hall said. “It’s a great chance for our employee volunteers to give back to our neighbors and is also a fantastic opportunity for residents to safely dispose of many items they have probably been hanging onto because they just didn’t know what to do with them.”
