The Oneida County Youth Bureau and Office for the Aging and Continuing Care will be teaming up this weekend for the 9th Annual Intergenerational Fall Clean-Up.

The county initiative unites youth from area colleges, school districts and youth organizations with senior citizens to offer general yard clean-up services.

The fall clean-up will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

“Our annual clean-ups deliver much-needed services to our Oneida County senior citizens who either can no longer physically do the work themselves, or due to a fixed income, can’t financially afford to have the work done for them,” said Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente. “They also give our youth the opportunity to give back to the community in a productive and meaningful way.”

During the Intergenerational Spring Clean-Up this past April, 488 youth volunteers throughout the county raked leaves, swept porches and brought refuse to the curb at 96 senior citizen households.
