Fall Yard CleanUp Fundraiser

FALL-2015-Clean-UP-FOMIt’s that time of year again! 

Fall Cleanups will run October 17th through November 29th and we need YOU!


Please use the SignUp Genius Links below to let us know your availability as a Chaperone or a Student worker for the yard cleanups this Fall.

Students earn $12.50 each per hour (better than minimum wage!) and 100% of their earnings go straight into their student accounts.  Each team of students will have one chaperone on site to help the students stay on task, collect payment from the homeowners, etc.  Working with the students is not required – we’re there to keep them safe and on task.

So, if you’re available to chaperone, or your student wants to participate in the fundraiser, please use the sign-up links below!  Teams will be assigned as yards are available so please look for assignment e-mails in the weeks to come!  Please keep in mind that every student may not be assigned for every slot they’re available.



Please feel free to share the attached PDF Flyer with everyone you know!

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Brenda McCarthy at 603-432-5556.

Thank you – we are looking forward to an exciting Fall Cleanup Season!
