Volunteer check-in begins at the KC Shepherd's Center administrative offices at 8:30 AM. We will provide coffee, hot chocolate, doughnuts, signs and supplies, take team photos and then send you off to rake your designated yard!
Roll up your sleeves, grab a rake, gather some of your favorite people and have a great time while making a difference in the lives of older adults in Kansas City.
PLEASE NOTE: We are no longer accepting homeowner applications at this time.
Who is this for?
Hundreds of volunteers from all over the metro are needed to address the need of older adults this fall. KC Shepherd's Center is looking to partner with corporate volunteers, local businesses, families, churches, schools, scouting groups, civic groups and individuals that are ready to grab a rake and go to work!
What to Expect
Light yard work and raking for older adults who are no longer physically able to care for their yards and can't always afford to hire help. 5-8 people will be assigned to each home. You may sign up as a team or be assigned to a team. Most homes only take between 2-4 hours to complete.
