Renton: Ever notice that one house on that block with the overgrown yard?

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Volunteer Services

Often there's a story! This yard might be out of control because the individual who lives there has physical limitations that mean they cannot take care of it on their own. They might not have family or friends to call on, or money to pay someone. They could use a nice volunteer like yourself to come out and help them with yard work. This could be weed eating, raking, mowing the lawn, and a variety of other services. Make their home look just as nice as the rest of the homes on the block. Gather your family, a small group, or even do whatever you can alone! Help these seniors take pride in the appearance of their home.

Background on Volunteer Services:

Volunteer Services, a program of Catholic Community Services, assists low-income elders and persons living with disabilities. Volunteers can provide assistance with light housecleaning, transportation, grocery shopping, home repair, and yard care. With a little help from volunteers, clients can continue to live independently in their homes.

Due to the vulnerable population we serve, volunteers must complete an application form, pass a Washington State Patrol check and attend an orientation.
