Join A Little Help in caring for our older adult neighbors by volunteering for A Little Help's Service Saturdays!
Service Saturday! brings groups of volunteers together to complete seasonal yard and home chores for older adult households. Volunteers help with tasks around an older adult home such as planting, preparing gardens, raking leaves, pulling weeds, washing windows, moving yard furniture into place for the season, seasonal cleaning & organizing, gutter cleaning and more...all while enjoying meeting and spending time with an older adult neighbor. Service Saturday! is an intergenerational event and volunteers include families, students and neighbors of all ages.
