Somerset County to Launch Fall Clean-Up Day November 18 for Senior and Disabled Homeowners
SOMERVILLE, NJ – The Somerset County Office of Volunteer Services are putting out the call for senior and disabled homeowners who could use some help with the annual fall leaf-raking and yard work. The County’s Annual Fall Leaf Cleanup is scheduled for Saturday, November 18, 2023, and there are volunteers from the service organizations, houses of worship, scouting groups, and other generous Somerset County residents ready to help out.
“One of the best things about Somerset County is how neighbors take care of neighbors, and the County’s Annual Fall Leaf Clean Up is a perfect example of volunteers making a difference,” said Commissioner Paul Drake, liaison to Volunteer Services. “If you are or know of a senior or disabled homeowner who needs a hand, please reach out to us as soon as possible so we can schedule a volunteer visit.”
To be eligible for the Fall Clean-Up Project, a property must be in Somerset County, a half-acre or less, and not have a contracted landscaping service that would otherwise do the work. The occupants of the residence must be senior citizens and disabled homeowners around the county who have no other means to do yard work.
To register, please call the Somerset County Office of Volunteer Services at 908-704-6301 by November 9, 2023, or email JDambeck@co.somerset.nj.us.
