Make a difference with the United Way
For Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD — Marshfield Area United Way is recruiting volunteers to participate in National Make a Difference Day, which is Saturday, Oct. 22. From 8:30 a.m. until noon, volunteers will be raking leaves for elderly and disabled Marshfield residents in need of assistance with their yards.
A little bit of time, a little bit of muscle, and a lot of heart will make a big difference for Marshfield residents who are physically unable to rake their lawns themselves. Volunteers interested in helping on this day can register at volunteermarshfield.org, send an email to email@example.com, or call 715-384-9992. Participants are asked to register in advance so United Way can estimate how many lawns can be raked during the event.
Volunteers will gather at the rear entrance of the Marshfield Area United Way office, 106 W. First St., at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 22 to receive instructions and lawn assignments. United Way asks that volunteers bring their own rakes and have their own transportation. A light snack and water will be provided.
Residents in need of assistance with their lawns should call United Way to see if they qualify for assistance. Anyone receiving help on this day must be home on the morning of Oct. 22. Additionally, residents are responsible for providing enough leaf bags to bag all the leaves raked by the volunteers.
Contact United Way at 715-384-9992 with any questions.
