D123 Community Leaf Raking Event

Saturday, November 13th!

Community Leaf Raking!

A family event of service!

In cooperation with The Village of Oak Lawn and City of Hometown, School District 123 will be sponsoring a senior citizen leaf raking day. Community families are invited to participate in helping rake leaves for others in our community.

This year we will be extending our service to veterans as well. This event is intended for us to help better serve our community. It is always a fun and rewarding day! As we did last year, we will be deploying COVID19 protocols for this event. This will be a family-only event. Due to COVID19, we can't support having mixed groups of participants being transported in cars to leaf locations; therefore, we are working exclusively with family “units” - 2 or more with transportation. Family units will report to the Middle School to receive assignments and maps for each family. We apologize that we cannot support independent volunteers participating at this time.

Families interested in participating will meet at OLHMS (5345 West 99th Street) at 8:00 am with rakes in hand. Come prepared! Please bring your own rake or raking device to the event. Comfortable work clothing, a set of gloves and mask (for building entry) are suggested. A complimentary Grab & Go lunch at Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School will follow the leaf raking for all participants at 12:00PM. We also need your help in identifying the seniors, veterans, and/or those within our community that could benefit from this service. Please send in any addresses of those homes to your school, even if your family is unable to participate in the raking.

Please use this link to sign up and return it to your school no later than Wednesday, November 10, 2021.
