Volunteers Needed for Annual ‘Rake Up the Flathead’

By Beacon Staff

Volunteers and projects are needed for the ninth annual Rake Up the Flathead on Nov. 8-9. The United Way Volunteer Center is coordinating the event and is seeking both volunteers to do fall yard work and referrals of senior citizens or disabled people who need help with fall projects.

Whether it’s raking leaves, stacking firewood or hauling leaves to the refuse site, volunteers can help. Individuals, families, businesses and church groups are invited to volunteer for a fun and rewarding time that helps people who can’t do their own fall cleanup. Businesses, youth groups and church groups that can’t work on the scheduled days can still participate by calling the United Way to set up a time that works for their group.

Volunteers can sign up to a whole day or a half day, whichever fits their schedule.

To volunteer for Rake Up the Flathead or to make a referral for a project that needs doing, call the United Way Volunteer Center at 752-7266. Registration deadline for projects is Friday, Nov. 1.
