Details:

Village in the Ville is a member-driven organization that provides friendship, support, and education for adults 50+ in the Clintonville-Beechwold neighborhood. Since the 1990's, they have met their members' needs through organized social and education events, volunteer assistance, referral to service providers, and opportunities for engagement within the Clintonville community. Village in the Ville is a program of the Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resources Center.

 

Join Besa and Village in the Ville to support our senior neighbors! As a volunteer, you'll ensure our Clintonville neighbors are ready for winter by assisting with yard beautification tasks, such as raking and debris clearing. Volunteers will meet at the Clintonville Resource Center, where we will provide a brief training and overview.  Volunteers may have to drive a short distance to their designated senior's home.

 

The Clintonville-Beechwold Community Resource Center will enforce social distancing. Limited client interaction may take place during this volunteer event. Volunteers are required to bring their own mask, as the CRC will not be providing any. If you have your own gardening gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
