Wausau, WI- United Way of Marathon County Volunteer Connection coordinates the largest raking project in the area, helping give elderly and disabled residents peace of mind and maintaining independence. Anyone can register to rake a yard. Groups are encouraged to participate together and help the community. Fall yard cleanup is a great way to volunteer while adhering to safe, social distancing. Raking will take place the week of October 18-23, 2021 when it is convenient for the volunteers, and the homeowner.
In 2020, over 360 volunteers came together with rakes and trailers to clean up 110+ yards of elderly or disabled residents in the greater Wausau area. Volunteers included school groups (from elementary to college), Boy Scout Troops, Girl Scout Troops, corporate groups, families, churches, service organizations, and more.
