BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — On Sunday, September 28, thousands of volunteers will join for a day of community service to help charities, organizations, neighborhoods, and citizens throughout Birmingham.

The “Magic City Miracle” group says the possibility of inclement weather won’t stop them from taking on nearly 200 work and service projects Sunday afternoon. The original sendoff celebration, which was slated to take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.  is currently the biggest change as it has been cancelled. Several outdoor projects have been moved indoors as well.

Volunteers are asked to go directly to their service project sites at 1:30 p.m. to begin work.

Magic City Miracle was created three years ago by a members of the community who wished to unify Birmingham in a day of service to benefit those in need. The 2014 “Miracle” is set to be the biggest yet, and despite the expected inclement weather Sunday, volunteers say with a little ingenuity and determination, the group will still produce that Miracle in the Magic City.
