More than 200 Meredith Corp. volunteers and Rebuilding Together Greater Des Moines will team up Thursday in the Columbus Park neighborhood on Des Moines' south side to repair homes, install playground equipment and spruce up the Bellizzi MacRae American Legion Hall.

Teams will work on five houses located between Southeast First and Fifth streets as part of Meredith's 12th Annual Fall Workday. Improvements will include remodeling homes to be handicap accessible, replacing siding, painting and landscaping.
