The first volunteer meeting for the new ‘Makeover Burien’ organization was held Wednesday night, Jan. 4 at The Mark Restaurant, with a group of 12 discussing how they can help give the Burien business community a boost.
More volunteers are needed, as are applicant businesses that may need a ‘makeover’ – here are documents that you can download and fill out (PDF files):

As we’ve previously reported:
‘Makeover Burien’ will be a 12-month long project where volunteers will help a different local business every month. Each month a business will be selected that needs some help, then volunteers will go in, give employees a makeover at Keane’s Serenza Salon & Spa, while others help clean up or fix things up at the business location.
This project was conceived by Keane, and will be produced in association with The B-Town Blog.
Volunteers are still needed to help with this monthly event, as are local businesses that can contribute in-kind services or products to help fellow businesspeople. Some of the categories needed are services like handymen, contractors, accountants, business consultants, carpet (and other) cleaners, and just about anything else that can help a business get spruced up.
But it’s not just about helping businesses.
“The ultimate goal at the end of 2012 will be to find a needy local family that could use an extreme makeover,” Keane added. “We’ll then go to their home, give the family a makeover while workers help clean and fix up their house.”
Monthly reports will be posted to The B-Town Blog, including photos of each makeover event as well as lists and links of businesses that helped. In other words, if you or your business volunteers to help this project, you’ll receive free marketing on the blog, which reaches between 50,000 – 60,000 Unique Visitors per month.
In addition, a separate website will be built, and photos and videos will be produced and posted as well.
