Extreme Yard Rakeover 2010 Update

We are pleased to bring you this update about Extreme Yard Rakeover 2010!

Yard assessments for our clients are currently underway and we are almost ready to match your volunteer group with a client(s). Beginning the week of October 25th, we will be in contact with you to give you specifics on the client whose yard you will rake during the first three weeks of November. Also, that week t-shirts and gift bags will be available for pick-up at two convenient locations. Watch your email for details to come!

To best match you with a client be sure and email us the following information if you haven't already: Number of volunteers in your group and the day or days your group wants to volunteer. Also, give us an idea of how many yards you would like to complete. (In planning your date of service, we recommend you choose an alternate or rain-out date. You never know what November weather will bring!)

In the meantime, please download the forms to be found on the right side of the blog.

1. Volunteer Guidelines-- please review! This document contains everything you need to know about being an EYR volunteer. Instructions are also given on the steps you need to follow once a yard is assigned to you.

2. Waivers of Liability- Two waivers are attached. One version is for adults the other is for children 17 and under. EACH VOLUNTEER MUST SIGN A WAIVER (if volunteer is under 18, please have guardian sign the guardian waiver on behalf of the child). The waivers should be returned to us by November 1st. Here are a couple of ways to return the waivers to us:
a. Scan the signed forms and email to extremeyardrakeover@gmail.com
b. Fax the forms to 816-444-1177 Attn EYR
c. Mail (or drop off) the signed forms to SCC, Attn EYR 5200 OAK KCMO 64112
d. Return forms to the site where you pick up your t-shirts and bags, the week of October 25th.

Please be sure we have signed forms for EVERY member of your group by November 1st.

3. Volunteer Attendance Sheet & 4. Exit Assessment- These forms are to be used on your day of volunteer service. Please be sure that every group member signs the volunteer attendance sheet and indicate the # of service hours completed.. The exit assessment is a quick survey you the group leader will complete with the client after you finish raking their yard. Both of these forms should be returned to us within 3 days of your volunteer day. Return these forms via the methods listed above.
