perform spring clean-up projects such as mowing lawns,
weeding flower beds, trimming bushes and raking leaves
for older adults having difficulty keeping up with the
demands of home ownership. Interested people may volunteer
in groups or as individuals. Volunteers must be at least
18 years old or be accompanied by an adult. The purpose
of the CYO Home Service Project is to build
community and enable older adults to remain in their homes
by matching them with caring people who can provide light
home and yard maintenance services. People in Summit County
who have difficulty keeping up with the demands of home
ownership due to ailing health and a lack of financial
resources are candidates for the program. To volunteer,
call (330) 762-2961, ext. 232, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
