Opportunity for Community Service

The Village of Brooklyn Heights is recruiting volunteers for The Scouts & Students for Seniors Leaf Raking Program scheduled for Saturday, November 8th (weather permitting) at 9:30 AM. This event serves senior residents (age 65+) in the community who have no one to clean their yards of fallen leaves. You'll rake leaves from the front and back yards to the curb and the  Service Department will collect them. Volunteers will gather at Brooklyn Heights Village Park, Pavilion #2, for street assignments and return after raking for a pizza party courtesy of the mayor. Participants are asked to bring their own rakes and/or leaf blowers. This event runs until approximately 2 PM. Groups and/or individuals are welcome and asked to sign up no later than Friday, October 31st. Contact Thea at (216) 739-3702 during business hours to sign up or with questions. This is a great service project!
