The City of Maryland Heights is seeking volunteers for our Fall Service Day scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 2 from 8:15 a.m.-Noon.

Tasks will primarily be raking and bagging leaves, and may include some weeding and minor shrub trimming. Leaf bags will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to bring a rake and work gloves. No special skills are needed and all willing volunteers are encouraged to sign-up.

This is a great volunteer opportunity for Boy and Girl Scout troops, civic organizations, church groups and students looking to fulfill volunteer hours. 

Volunteers will meet at 8:15 a.m. at the Maryland Heights Community Center to sign-in, obtain a volunteer tshirt, get a light breakfast and have a brief orientation. All yard work will wrap up by Noon.
