A helping hand is often the greatest gift you can give, especially when the snow falls and the temperature drops. Clearing out a neighbor’s driveway, raking leaves, or cleaning up the sidewalk is a great way to show you care. You could help an elderly neighbor or even support a community organization by cleaning up their outdoor area.
Here’s what you’re doing:
Shovel snow or rake leaves for a neighbor or community organization.
Here’s what you need:
- Shovel or rake
- Optional: gloves to protect your hands
Here’s how you do it!
- Reach out to a neighbor or community organization. Ask if they’d like help shoveling snow or cleaning up their yard.
- Ask them for instructions on what they’d like you to do. If you are shoveling snow, for example, find out where to shovel and where to put the snow.
- Roll up your sleeves and help out!
