The town of Irondequoit will host its Raking a Difference volunteer effort to assist older residents with their fall yard clean-up from 9 a.m. to noon Oct. 29 starting at the Irondequoit Town Hall Gazebo, 1280 Titus Ave., Rochester.
Hundreds of senior citizens have indicated they would like to have their lawn raked, and the town is sending a call out to potential volunteers to help meet demand. The event is part of a broader effort to meet the needs of Irondequoit’s senior community. Volunteers will be dispatched in groups from Town Hall.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own gloves. Rakes will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring rakes and blowers if they have them.
“I am proud of the large number of residents who have already signed up to help with this effort,” said Dave Seeley, town supervisor. “Our older residents helped build this town and make Irondequoit a wonderful community. This is an opportunity to give back to our seniors. We have set a high bar for performance, and I’m confident that Irondequoit will answer the call.”
Interested volunteers are encouraged to call 585-336-3029 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
