Annual Main Events

Prepare Affair

Prepare Affair 2014 is Sat. Nov. 15 Online registration will open Sept. 1.  Please note that we will not be giving away t-shirts this year due to rising costs. T-shirts will be on sale prior to the event and the day of the event for $10. 

This year, in addition to raking leaves and cleaning gutters we will also help our homeowners with fall prevention tips. You can help a homeowner who is elderly or disabled prevent a fall!

What Is Prepare Affair?

Prepare Affair brings together more than 3,000 volunteers to help elderly homeowners prepare their homes for winter. One of the largest one-day events in the tri-state, volunteers at Prepare Affair will perform winter preparation activities that mean the world to elderly homeowners with physical limitations. Come join the fun!

What kinds of services are performed during Prepare Affair?

Services range from raking leaves and cleaning gutters to other small winter preparation tasks.
