Let’s help older citizens maintain their property!
The Extreme Yard Rakeover is a program through Jewish Family Services where older homeowners who can no longer rake their yards are assisted with a spring clean-up. JFS provides up to 20 yard waste bags per home, and volunteers provide the stamina!
This is a family friendly event, so bring your family and friends and let’s have fun while we help. Please wear appropriate clothing and closed toe shoes that will protect you as we work. If you have a rake and work gloves they will also be helpful. Bottled water will be provided for the rakers.
The specific address will be sent to those who RSVP when the date is near.
We raked last fall through another program, and the residents were very appreciative. Along with the satisfaction of helping these senior citizens, we got some exercise, and met some of the hardest working volunteers in Kansas City! I really hope to see some of them again this spring:)
