WANTED: Landscape Angels / Snow Angels – Angels Help Seniors with Landscaping and Snow Removal By Paul Feiner
Sign up to volunteer or if you are a senior in need of assistance…
Landscape Angels help seniors with landscaping on October 23rd and November 19th. The Town of Greenburgh is compiling a list of residents who need help and those residents who will volunteer residents who need such help.
I’m happy to introduce our new volunteers – exemplary high school students – to head up this year’s Landscaping Angels and Snow Angels programs to help seniors on a limited budget rake or shovel their lawns and driveways/sidewalks. They are looking for both teenage volunteers to assist their efforts in getting to as many seniors as possible, and for requests from seniors who need help.
In their own words, here’s Liam and Zach:
My name is liam mantini and I’ll be leading Greenburgh’s Landscaping Angels program this case. Landscaping Angels asks high schoolers around our area to help volunteer by assisting our senior citizens with their basic landscaping needs – primarily with raking leaves. In hopes to maximize the efficiency of this program, we plan on dedicating two days this fall where we will go around responding to any requests for help. Those two dates this year are October 23rd and November 19th. I’ve been an active Snow Angel for the past three years, and to be able to head this new program is rewarding and exciting. To sign up as a volunteer or to request help, please visit the links below. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
My name is Zach Weinhouse and I’ll be leading Greenburgh’s Snow Angels program this winter. Snow Angels gathers high schoolers to volunteer and help shovel the driveways and walkways of homeowners who can’t do it themselves. I’ve been an active Snow Angel for the past three years, and feel prepared and excited to take on this leadership role. When I’m not shoveling driveways, you can find me playing football or tennis for Ardsley High School or studying for an upcoming test. If you have any questions, feel free to reach
out to email@example.com!
