Volunteers Needed for DCCDC Landscaping Effort

by | Jun 10, 2021

Volunteers need to help with landscaping project at Davidson Cornelius Child Development Center.


Located on the corner of Gamble St and Jetton St, DCCDC a non-profit child development center, sits prominently in the Davidson community. In addition to providing an inviting environment for the 62 students and families they serve, DCCDC wants to be a welcoming sight to those who drive, bike, and walk by on a daily basis.

Even the Little Free Library needs some TLC.

If you live in the area, you have likely seen construction is underway on the playground. As for the front of the building facing Gamble St., the center could use volunteer efforts. Volunteers are wanted to help bring some much-needed curb appeal by way of landscaping.

Volunteers can help in one of three ways.

  1. Donate money for the purchase of supplies
  2. Donate landscaping materials – flowers, bags of mulch, weed killer
  3. Volunteer time to landscape and/or repair the Little Free Library

Below are some specific needs that have been identified:

  • Spraying weed killer
  • Laying new mulch (brown) in the flower beds
  • Planting flowers (any) in the 4 available pots
  • Trimming and cutting down the bushes that span the length of the front of the building. This is a big undertaking so an electric trimmer would be best for the job!
  • Fixing up the Little Free Library with paint, a new roof, and new door closure

We have a goal to complete this project by July. Volunteers can come whenever is convenient to them and can coordinate a time with the Cassie, the DCCDC Family Engagement Specialist, who is heading the initiative. Cassie can be contacted via email [email protected] or by calling the center 704-892-1228 Monday through Friday between 10am-6pm.
