Day of Caring

Eighth Annual Day of Caring - May 9, 2018

Overview

The Day of Caring was introduced to the communities of Little Falls and Randall in 2011. In 2017 the annual event brought over 3,400 hours of community service to help the elderly and disabled population in the cities of Little Falls and Randall. Over 1100 volunteers helped clean up and rake 213 properties and six community sites.

We are looking for seniors, homebound, and disabled individuals living within the city limits of Little Falls and Randall, as well as the villages of Flensburg and Sobieski who need assistance completing outdoor projects. Projects must be able to be completed within three hours. A team of students or adult volunteers will arrive at your home to help you on this “Day of Caring.” Projects may include:

  • Window washing (outdoors and ground floor only) • Raking yard
  • Clean-up gardens and/or flower beds
  • Other outdoor projects

Home owners are required to be at their home while the team of volunteers works on the project.
