Volunteers help elderly and disabled to Rake Up Nampa

By Jaclyn Brandt. CREATED Nov 15, 2012

The City of Nampa will be holding Rake Up Nampa this Saturday. Teams will meet beginning at 8 a.m. at the Economic Development Office located at 9 Twelfth Ave South.

 

"This year 850 volunteers are helping the owners of 87 homes," said Sharla Arledge with the City of Nampa. "The owners of the homes are elderly and/or disabled and the work of the volunteers makes a huge difference for them. Volunteers find the experience extremely rewarding."

 

Arledge said that Rake Up Nampa is made possible because of the community’s willingness to volunteer and help their neighbors.
