Falling leaves are piling up and seasonal plants are toppling over…and many older adults in the Denver metro area are struggling to tackle their autumn yard work. That’s where the volunteers from the Denver-based nonprofit, A Little Help, step in to lend a hand. Like a team of service superheroes, families and groups don their work gloves to support their older neighbors with chores like raking, decluttering, window washing, trimming bushes, and gutter cleanup.
These Service Saturdays, held twice a year, are open to anyone who would like to volunteer, including teens and kids (those under 13 must be accompanied by an adult). This fall’s Service Saturday in Metro Denver is on November 6, and includes a morning meetup for doughnuts and a celebratory lunch to finish the day. Families interested in volunteering should reach out to A Little Help.
