Oneida County’s Intergenerational Cleanup This Weekend
The Oneida County Youth Bureau and County Office for the Aging and Continuing Care's Intergenerational Spring Clean-Up is happening this weekend.
The County initiative, in its 10th year, unites youth from area colleges, school districts and youth organizations with senior citizens for general yard clean-up services.
The spring cleanup will take place on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 to 2:00.
"Last October, 650 youth volunteers throughout Oneida County raked and collected leaves, swept porches, sidewalks and driveways and brought light refuse to the curb at 110 senior citizen households during our Annual Intergenerational Fall Clean-Up," County Executive Anthony Picente said. "Our fall and spring clean-ups deliver much needed services each year to our seniors who can physically no longer do the work themselves or can't afford to pay to have it done. The clean-ups also give our community youth the opportunity to make a real difference in people's lives."
This year's fall session is scheduled for October 20th and 21st.
Any youth organization interested in volunteering for the fall clean-up should contact the Oneida County Youth Bureau at 315-798-5027.
