DANVILLE, Calif. (April 6, 2023): The Town of Danville is seeking volunteers for the 19th annual Lend-a-Hand Day on Saturday, April 22. Community volunteers can donate their time to provide yard work assistance to their senior neighbors in Danville by raking, mowing, trimming and gutter cleaning.
More than 100 volunteers will help beautify the neighborhoods by providing individual attention to homeowners who may be no longer able to maintain their yards themselves. Volunteers can range in age from teens 13 and older (with adult supervision) to seniors themselves. No previous yard work experience is necessary. Pre-registration is encouraged so Town staff know how many seniors can be assisted, but volunteers can sign up the day of the event as well.
Volunteers for the event will meet at the Danville Senior Center to pick up tools and receive their assignments for the day. Volunteers are assigned to houses based on home assessments made by Danville staff, who determine size and scope of each home project.
Interested volunteers are encouraged to fill out a volunteer profile and sign up in advance to volunteer by visiting www.danville.ca.gov/volunteer. For more information, contact Recreation Superintendent, Jessica Wallner at (925) 314-3426 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
