Planting Independence April 21 & 22, 2023
TWP is “Planting Independence – One yard at a time”
This program provides assistance with general yard clean-up to consumers who receive services, or are in any of our programs, that own or rent their homes. TWP partners with volunteer groups to perform low to moderate risk activities such as mowing, raking, weeding, and planting. (Excluded activities are lifting over 50 lbs or handling or removing any hazardous material.)
Yard maintenance can be a tough situation for people with disabilities. This activity with our volunteers helps TWP Consumers get a handle on their yards and avoid unnecessary fines from the city where they live. This is an excellent volunteer opportunity for individuals, families, clubs, schools, scouts, organizations, and businesses who are looking for an activity to give back, be outdoors, and serve individuals in our community that live with disabilities.
