Want to Get Your Hands Dirty? Drop-In Vol Work Days 10/17, 11/11

Wednesday, 14 October 2015 00:00

Our Volunteer Corps is growing, and beginning to have a real impact. If you would like to get more involved with the Wakefield Estate, you too can make a difference! Come out and get your hands DIRTY!

This fall, we are anxious to partner with corporations, churches, community groups, scout troops, families, and groups of friends who are interested in coming out for a few hours to help with fall clean-up. We have some "Drop-In Volunteer Days" scheduled on the October, and a Community Service Day on Veteran's Day, November 11. We've got lots of work to do, ranging from trail maintenance and preparation for the school trips, to fall clean-up and raking. If getting dirty isn't your thing, give us a call and we can probably find a task that will match your interests and our needs!

If you're interested in learning more about our volunteer needs and opportunities, please call Erica Max at 617-333-0924 x22.
