WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS!
What is LawnBusters?
LawnBusters is volunteer lawn-care service for seniors and/or persons with disabilities. Volunteers help residents remain in their homes safely over the spring and summer by reducing the risk of them harming themselves in the heat using lawn equipment. The LawnBusters community program matches eligible individuals with volunteers who commit to cutting grass and trimming edges from a residents’ front and/or back lawn as needed.
What will your help do?
The LawnBuster volunteers are an essential part of making a life-changing experience for our community, whether you become a LawnBuster or simply help out a neighbour on your block. Help to build a stronger and safer community and create an opportunity for an important connection.
• It helps neighbours remain independent in their homes.
• Helps prevent injuries from heat stroke and using equipment.
• Promotes community connections and inclusion.
• It’s also great exercise!
When? How Long?
During the 2019 spring and summer season as needed— typically once a week.
We do our best to match our volunteers with residents who live nearby.
Who is eligible?
• Teens over the age of 14 years
• Teams or Groups
At the Volunteer Strathcona, we envision a community where people look out for each other. Together, we can create a supportive, safe, and connected place to call home. Register today!
