La Crescent Neighbors Day

Program Description

An annual one-day event that serves older adults and other individuals who need assistance with spring yard work. Volunteers work in teams to rake lawns and wash windows. Each year the Neighbors Day Committee has coordinated approximately 200 community volunteers to make this day a reality. Volunteer teams include families, businesses, service organizations and church and school groups. Through their tremendous support, community teams served hundreds of households since the event started in 2006.
