A Watertown group will assist people who need help with raking their leaves this fall.
Trees for Watertown will organize Watertown High School students and volunteers to rake leaves for residents who have trouble raking their own leaves. The raking will take place on Nov. 17 and Nov. 23. Yards will be raked for free.
“You don’t need to be home, we will bring the rakes and bags,” the announcement said. “We would love to do a neighbor in need this service.”
Those interested in getting help raking leaves can email Emily a RakeLeavesWatertown@gmail.com with address to be raked, contact info and why the residence needs this service. Or, call 617-275-6964 and leave a voicemail.
Trees for Watertown also sent out a call for volunteers:
