Plano Code Abatement by Residents Engaged in Service (CARES) connects local volunteers to residents in need of assistance with common property code violations. While most residential violations are quickly resolved, those who are not able to correct violations because of physical or financial hardship may find assistance through Plano CARES. Eligible violations may include minimal tree trimming, trash removal, damaged fence removal/repair, accessory building removal/repair, and minor exterior home repair.
Project work days are scheduled for the 2nd Saturday of every month (except for May) from March through November. The majority of projects involve basic landscaping, tree trimming, minor fence repair, and small demolition projects (accessory building). Tools and equipment will be available on work days for volunteer use. Volunteers must be 18 years or older to operate power tools and youth groups must be supervised by an adult. Tools and space are limited. For more information, please call 972-208-8150.
Most importantly, Plano CARES depends on the dedication and hard work of volunteers like you. Click on the button below to volunteer!
