Connections Volunteer Center is planning for this year’s event to be a socially distanced and safe event. There will be no large group gatherings. Volunteers will be assigned to one older adult’s property in groups of 10 or less. One volunteer from each group/family registered will pick up a volunteer packet and leaf bags during the week prior to the event in either Delaware City or Sunbury.
Volunteers will go directly to their assigned older adult’s home at 9:00 am to to do outdoor chores. Older adults will be asked to remain inside their homes. Volunteers are not permitted to enter the older adults homes. This is our standard practice, but more important than ever.
At noon volunteers will return to a central location to drive through and drop off the paperwork.
All volunteers are requested to bring their own tools and gloves. Volunteers should also bring their own drinks and/or snacks if needed. For volunteers that do not have tools, we have a limited supply of rakes that can be loaned out. All tools will be sanitized before being loaned and upon return.
Volunteers are asked to take preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory illness, such as COVID-19.
