Support Your Neighbor with Cleaning and Laundry Assistance (<4 Hours/Month)
Your 70 year old neighbor living with ALS needs help around her 500 square foot apartment. You can make her life easier by cleaning (vacuuming, cleaning the kitchen and bathroom), doing her laundry, and possibly running some errands while you’re out and about (she’ll reimburse you for her purchases).
