“We want to be able to help those who need help,” says Adam Smrokowski, who is a resident volunteer on the Westmont First Committee. “If people have a little time to offer on Saturday, November 9, then I’m sure we’ll be able to match them with a resident who is in need of fall yard care assistance.”
Residents who want to help can sign up by clicking the link below. Citizens who need help, such as seniors or individuals with disabilities, with their fall yard maintenance can fill out the same form.

“The goal is to create opportunities for our citizens to be neighborly and community-minded. Programs like this will bring us closer together,” says Westmont First Committee Chair Bruce Barker. “Participating in the Westmont First Leaf Raking Program is as simple as helping your neighbor down the block who needs some assistance with their fall yard cleanup. Any amount of time that someone can participate is beneficial to our success. Together, we can accomplish great things.”
