CANCELED - Help Local Seniors with DC Spartans

Project Description

Hey all-

Seabury has canceled this event (and all other events) due to risks from the coronavirus.

Hopefully we can rescheule when things get back to normal.

Thank you all for being so willing to help those in your community. Go Green!

 

 

 

 

We will be volunteering with Seabury's Age-in-Place program supports seniors "through transformative volunteer service projects that help people stay in their own homes." 

WE NEED TO HAVE AN ACCURATE HEADCOUNT BY MARCH 14. Many of our events are casual "come if you can" but for this one we need a solid headcount - thanks in advance! (If for some reason you missed the March 14. deadline, email me at emrwilkins@gmail.com and I'll do my best to get you in)

Here's a quick overview of what you can expect:

  • Arrive at Seabury's HQ (there is a parking lot as well as parking on the street.)
  • 15-20 minute orientation with AIP staff

  • Volunteers help load tools into the van

  • An AIP staff member will drive volunteers to the client’s home

  • Volunteers complete yard work and/or house cleaning projects, working alongside staff. This may include, but is not limited to: mowing grass, raking leaves, trimming hedges, cleaning kitchens and bathrooms, dusting, sweeping and mopping, vacuuming, washing windows and mirrors, etc.

  • When possible, time for conversation and sharing with client is included

  • Once service is complete, AIP staff will drive the group back to the office. Volunteers will take brief survey
