ORGANIZATION: The Center of Concern

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 9 people are interested

The Center of Concern's Spring Community Service Day is on Saturday, May 4, 2024. Every year the Center of Concern has two Community Service Days, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. I am looking for groups or individuals that will form 3-5 person teams that will be assigned a few clients to provide the listed services below.

Individuals, families, and groups of friends are invited to volunteer to assist older adults with tasks such as window washing, spring garden cleanup, planting, light trimming, or weed pulling.

This is a great all-ages volunteering opportunity! Volunteers will be outside for most activities, unless the job is interior windows. We do not use ladders for any upper floor windows, but do have some pole washers.

Call 847-823-0453, email concern@centerofconcern.org, or visit www.centerofconcern.org/service to learn more and sign up!
