MODESTO — On April 23, members of the community will gather to complete more than 100 projects aimed at making Modesto and other valley cities a better place. It is all part of the ongoing efforts of Love Modesto, a nonprofit that was started by members of Big Valley Grace Community Church in Modesto in 2009.

Hailed as a one-day volunteer frenzy, community members participate by signing up online for specific projects. Those projects range from making cards for veterans to planting a community garden.
