Meet Bill (not his real name). Bill is 91 years old. He has taken care of his home by himself for many years and is proud of all he has done on his own. But Bill’s daughters are worried. Bill has fallen off ladders many times over the past year, and they are concerned that the next time he falls he will really hurt himself. Bill’s arthritis also makes doing his regular chores much more difficult. Bill and his daughters want him to be able to stay at home. But Bill needs some painting done, his porch repaired, and his gutters cleaned. Bill is more than happy to work alongside the volunteers to get this work done. Will you help Bill?
Volunteer projects include painting, gardening, yard clean-up, small building projects, and SO MUCH MORE!
