Prepare Affair

Join us for Prepare Affair on November 19th from 8am - noon to rake leaves and clean gutters for seniors and homeowners living with disabilities in your community. It's a great opportunity to help out and give back...and instantly make a positive, lasting impact on the lives of our neighbors in need. 

No experience needed - this event is open to all ages and skillsets! This year, in an effort to keep everyone safe, we will be hosting the event throughout the month of November – you and your team can pick the day you want to volunteer. 

Details for 2022: 

  • Register as a crew leader and form a team. No crew is too small!

  • Can’t make it on the 19th? Pick a day that’s convenient for you and your team

  • You’re welcome to meet your teammates at PWC (4612 Paddock Road) at 7:30, grab a cup of coffee and your supplies and carpool to the first jobsite!

  • Don’t have a team? Come on your own on 11/19. We will team you up with some other individual volunteers and have you serve homeowners nearby!

  • Bring your own ladders and rakes or borrow ours. We have plenty of yard bags, gloves, and swag to hand out!

  • If you’re volunteering on the morning of the 19th, join us when you’re done for the celebration cookout from Noon – 2:00pm!

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

How do I volunteer? 

Volunteering is easy! Simply register online or contact our volunteer department at (513) 351-7921. You can put together your own crew and be a crew leader, join an existing crew, or volunteer independently.
