Volunteers tackled nearly 70 different modest renovation and upgrade projects that included parks and homes in cities from New Plymouth to Vale.

The Serve Day event is in its 13th year, said Tammy Vogt, Community Serve Day director.

Vogt said the key theme of Community Serve Day is to "connect the resource to the need."
