General info on RAKE Projects​
 

On October 2nd, 2021, hundreds will gather in teams to maintain and refresh the community we enjoy. Projects will include things like highway clean-up, park maintenance, school revitalization and trail restoration. Each year we collaborate with city and county officials to find local projects that need work. Some will be picking up trash, others painting, and still others weed-eating or raking. We can accomplish so much when we work together.  

 

Each project will be conducted at a specific location in the community and will be spearheaded by a Team Leader. All you have to do is come with a willing heart and be ready to work at a pace that fits you.

If you would like to sign up and work with a particular group of people, choose a Team Leader. Team Leader instructions are listed below.  When your group members register they need to fill in the Team Leader's name when prompted to do so. This will assure you get place on the same team. Some smaller teams may be combined to form larger teams working in one location. 

 

The day of the event you will meet your team at your assigned project location at 9:00am. This information will be communicated to you via e-mail in the days leading up to the event.

Please note, all children under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. Some projects, like roadside clean-up, may not be appropriate for small children. Children will not be assigned to projects that may be unsafe for them.
