Volunteering

 

Lend a Hand in Springfield

Following a hugely successful project with Rebuilding Together Boston, the AARP Create the Good effort in Massachusetts heads to the western part of the state.

On Saturday, July 24, AARP Massachusetts, and Rebuilding Together Springfield will join forces in support of Create the Good to work on the home of an 80-year old disabled widow. Recently discharged from the hospital after a fall, this homeowner has always taken great pride in her yard and gardens, but has been unable to manage the work in recent years.

Lend a hand

Volunteers at all skill levels are encouraged to join us on this day of service. Even if your thumbs are anything but green, there is so much you can do to make a difference.
 
Volunteers will:

  • remove overgrown shrubs and bushes
  • cut grass
  • trim trees
  • spread landscaping mulch


Learn more and sign up today

This community event starts at 9am, and will end at 3pm. The deadline to sign up as a volunteer is July 9. To sign up, or learn more, just send us an email at mavolunteer@aarp.org.
