Volunteer Opportunities


Saturday, April 20, 2024 • 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.
Make a difference in our community by participating in Volunteer Service Day! You will spend the morning assisting elderly and disabled residents with yard work. Tasks primarily include raking/bagging leaves and may include some weeding or minor shrub trimming. Leaf bags are provided. Volunteers must be 8 years of age or older and are encouraged to bring a rake and work gloves. This is a great opportunity for Scout Troops, civic organizations, church groups, those needing volunteer hours, or those who just want to help!

To receive assistance, you must be a resident of Maryland Heights and either 62 years of age or older or under 62 with a documented disability. Priority will be given to individuals who have not received assistance at previous service day events. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Homeowners will be contacted one week prior to the event to confirm whether they will be receiving assistance. Homeowners must be at home at the time service is being completed. The deadline to request assistance is April 5.
