Shepherd’s Center Central and Jewish Family Services partner to provide free yard cleanup services for older adults

KANSAS CITY, Mo (September 13, 2010) - November 2010 will mark the third anniversary of Extreme Yard Rakeover. Extreme Yard Rakeover is a project sponsored by Shepherd’s Center Central in collaboration with Jewish Family Services to provide free yard cleanup services for older adult in Johnson County and parts of Kansas City, Mo.

Service areas on the Missouri side include residents living in the area between 46th to 85th and from State Line Rd to Paseo Blvd.

Volunteers are needed to provide this service to older adults who are financially and physically unable. Team leaders are needed to form groups of 6-10.
