A Little Help Denver North Service Saturday!
A person’s home is an important part of who they are. Home is often seen as an extension and expression of ourselves. By empowering members to stay in their homes, A Little Help helps our elders continue to take pride in their homes and yards. They are surrounded by evidence of past experiences and events that have helped shape their self-image. We want our neighbors to maintain their daily routines and activities as much as they are able, but sometimes those tasks around the home and in the yard just become unmanageable. We understand that many household and yard chores can become difficult with age, illness, or injury. Volunteers can help with the tasks listed below, or may serve in a consultant capacity, by providing information and advice. Service Saturdays! are twice-yearly events providing volunteer assistance for seniors with various home maintenance jobs, cleaning, organizing, raking, and other household tasks. Event volunteers join trained A Little Help volunteers to form small teams and tackle a multitude of tasks. A Little Help Service Saturdays! are great opportunities to pitch in and help your neighbors. We welcome volunteers from companies, churches, groups, families, and individuals. We need and appreciate your help to serve and celebrate the older adults in our communities!
WHAT IS SERVICE SATURDAY!?
Service Saturday! provides an excellent opportunity for A Little Help members to receive assistance with various home maintenance jobs, such as inspecting handrails, cleaning cupboards and refrigerators, de-cluttering closets, washing windows, dusting cobwebs, touching up paint, polishing furniture and floors, cleaning rugs, organizing paperwork, and just overall yard work. Bring your friends, family, groups, and coworkers to help in your community!
