Plymouth Community United Way (PCUW) needs volunteers to clean yards and do light chores in Plymouth, and Plymouth and Canton townships on Saturday, April 30 during the Rake N Go event.
Rake N Go is organized in partnership with Plymouth Community Council on Aging, and Comcast Cares Day to help senior citizens and those with disabilities with yard care.
Volunteers will meet on the day of the event at Plymouth First United Methodist Church for a continental breakfast and instructions.
Check in time is 8:30 a.m. Volunteers are asked to bring rakes, garden tools and gloves, and have their own transportation to travel between homes. United Way will supply the yard waste bags which will be distributed at the church.
Leaf blowers are a great help with larger yards, according to a spokesperson.
All ages are welcome, but those younger than 18 need to be accompanied by an adult.
To volunteer, call Randi Williams at (734) 453-6879, ext. 7 or e-mail randi.williams @pcuw.org by April 15.
Low-income seniors, 65 and older, who feel they may qualify for service should also contact Williams at the same number. Income verification will be required.
