Volunteer for Neighborhood Leaf Raking in Tangletown
Many of our Tangletown neighbors struggle to rake their leaves each fall. You can make a huge difference by volunteering on Saturday, Nov. 5, from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. Grab your rake or leaf blower, meet at Fuller Park to grab a cookie and some hot apple cider, and head out for a fun afternoon. This is a great family service activity and children and youth are very welcome to participate. Sign up as a team or individually and we can assign you to a team. To ensure we have enough bags and extra rakes, please SIGN UP by October 29th. When finished with leaf raking, volunteers are encouraged to enjoy the Water Quality Fair.
