Every year the Batavia United Way organizes a Day of Caring to help seniors in Batavia rake their leaves. This year’s event will take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 26.
The group is looking for lawns to rake, as well as groups, businesses and community members who would like to help. Yards will be raked only: no mowing, weed pulling, window washing, etc.
Helpers will meet at Suicide Prevention Services, 528 S. Batavia Ave. at 1 p.m. prior to raking. Please bring rakes, tarps and wear gloves.
For those wishing to volunteer, or inquire about getting a lawn raked, please contact Melinda Kintz, executive director of Batavia United Way by calling 630-877-2780, or via email info@bataviaunitedway.
