United Way Seeks Raking Volunteers and Individuals Who Need Yards Raked - Wisconsin Rapids

The Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings were among the groups who volunteered at the 2016 Day of Caring.
Save the date!  Our annual raking event, Day of Caring is scheduled for November 4, 2017 so mark your calendars!   All volunteers receive a free t-shirt and a hot breakfast.  Volunteers and team leaders can register online at  Event starts at 8:00am at the Grand Rapids Lion’s Club.  All youth volunteers MUST have a signed waiver from a parent or guardian.

We are also currently accepting registration from local elderly/disabled individuals who wish to have their yards raked by volunteers during Day of Caring. 

To register to have your yard raked, call 715-421-0390 and speak to a 2-1-1 information specialist between the hours of 8am-5pm, Monday through Friday.  This program is designed for low- or fixed-income elderly and/or disabled residents who have no other means of completing the raking service (ie: no family nearby, unable to pay a landscaping company, etc.). 

When calling to register, residents should be prepared to provide directions (or the nearest cross street) to their home; and be able to describe their yard size:
•       Small – 3 or less trees
•       Medium – 4-6 trees
•       Large – 7-10 trees
•       Jumbo – more than 10 trees

The deadline to register is October 20, 2017.  Residents who participate will be expected to provide their own leaf bags (if applicable) and instructions for the volunteers.  Instructions should include information about leaf disposal, depending on the municipality they live in.  Volunteers will only be raking leaves.  Participants are also expected to clean up any pet waste and trash from their yard before volunteers arrive.
