Join Us Saturday, October 29, 2022 - Grand Junction Service Saturday!
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 raking leaves, planting, gardens maintenance, 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.
Visit the FAQs section on our Service Saturday! Page for helpful suggestions and commonly asked questions.
