  2. Trim hedges
  3. Pull weeds and pick up debris surrounding property.
  4. Cut down weeds and clean up around dumpster.
  5. Plant flowers and lay mulch (if volunteer organization can donate)
  6. Outdoor toy shed needs cleaning, organization and reinforcement from critters seeking winter shelter.

Indoors:

  1. Wash windows, windowsills, doorframes and anywhere else that looks dusty. Those who volunteer to clean the windows will need to climb a ladder.
  2. Wash stairwells and floors.
  3. Read to toddler and/or preschool children in the morning before afternoon nap.
  4. Basement clean out and organization. Lifting and climbing up and down steps required.
  5. Wash door sills/window sills.
  6. Art projects and games with school-age children in the afternoon.

 

**Please note: this site is NOT handicapped accessible. Multiple sets of stairs required (into building, down to basement, and up to 2nd floor).

 

If volunteers have a special skillset, we can incorporate into our projects with the children.

 

An on-site visit by volunteer team leaders will be required prior to Day of Caring. We will accommodate large groups by breaking volunteers into smaller teams to do different projects.
