Our before and after photos are in! Our hero volunteers weeded, mowed, painted and trimmed in the yards of six Hilltop older adults on June 20, 2020. See the transformations here. We especially thank the Kiwanis of Columbus for their sponsorship of and participation in this event.
What is a Village?
Villages are membership organizations that offer reciprocal, person-centered opportunities for older adults to feel more confident aging in their community. This holistic approach utilizes a strong social network and a fun way to stay connected to the community. A Village connects neighbors with neighbors to assist with minor home maintenance, transportation, and other services as well.
Home Maintenance Days
In Spring 2021, we’ll have our next member yard clean up day. Members will be able to sign up to have volunteers come to their homes to assist them with minor home maintenance. Examples of the types of volunteer activities offered include: weeding a flower bed, mowing a lawn, picking up trash, or trimming hedges.
The benefits of members are large in comparison to the amount we ask members to contribute. Membership rates are $12 per month or $144 per year for an individual and $21 per month or $250 per year for a household. Scholarships are available. Please contact Barbara Camfield at 614-403-0843.
