A local community service program called Random Acts of Simple Kindness Affecting Local Seniors (RASKALS) is looking for volunteers to help senior citizens with outdoor chores this fall.
The West Chester Township program, which is offered twice each year, helps local seniors with window washing, raking, trimming shrubs, painting fences, spreading mulch, planting flowers and other chores.
The program helps seniors remain more self sufficient in their homes and has helped developed some meaningful friendships between the volunteers and their senior citizen clients.
Each RASKALS effort benefits more than 100 local seniors thanks to hundreds of volunteers from local organizations, churches and schools.
The fall RASKALS program is Nov. 10. The deadline to register is Oct. 19.
To register as a volunteer, call Laura Groff at 513-759-7312, or visit www.westchesteroh.org.
