Volunteers needed for Service Saturdays this fall

Posted

Anybody wanting to volunteer in the community is invited to participate in A Little Help’s Service Saturday events.

A Little Help is a local nonprofit that connects volunteers to help their senior-aged neighbors thrive. The organization serves communities in metro Denver, northern Colorado and the Western Slope. Volunteer opportunities range from yard work to creating Kindness Kits; and during the COVID-19 pandemic, running essential errands such as grocery shopping or making a phone call and having a conversation to combat loneliness and isolation.

Service Saturdays take place twice a year. These entail yardwork and outdoor chores/tasks that seniors may not be able to accomplish on their own.

This fall’s Service Saturdays take place Oct. 23-Nov. 13, with the Denver event taking place on Nov. 6. Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. at Denver South High School, 1700 E. Louisiana Ave. in the Washington Park neighborhood, for coffee and donuts and to receive work assignments and tools.

Volunteers will go out to the seniors’ homes in small groups to complete the projects. Work projects — which can include raking leaves, pulling weeds, washing windows, cleaning gutters, etc. — typically wrap up about noon. Volunteers are then invited to Junction Food & Drink, 2000 S. Colorado Blvd. in the University Hills neighborhood, for lunch and a post-service day celebration.

To learn more about volunteering or to register, visit alittlehelp.org/ServiceSaturdays or call A Little Help’s office at 720-242-9032.

Seniors who would like to receive a volunteer group can also call the number above to learn more and sign up.
