Helping Hands Needed in Hilltop Senior Village

The Shalom Zone, in support of its Hilltop Senior Village*, "Ville on the Hill," is sponsoring a work day on October 19 starting at 9AM. Interested volunteers will meet at the Heart and Hope Funeral Home, which is located at 3030 W. Broad St. Workers will be doing light home maintenance tasks, such as raking leaves, weeding garden beds, changing interior and exterior light bulbs, picking up trash, and other jobs that may present a challenge for older adults. Some items will be provided (e.g. lawn and leaf bags, gloves, rakes). If you want to bring your own implements, please make sure they are plainly marked. Questions? Please contact Jon Pierce at (614) 264-7808 or Shalom!

* The Senior Village concept allows those 50+ to "age in place" by providing opportunities to gather socially as well as having routine maintenance performed by volunteers. The "Ville on the Hill" is the fifth such "village" in the greater Columbus area and is part of a nationwide effort to address some of the challenges faced by older adults.
