Danville seeks volunteers to help seniors for Lend a Hand Day

150 helpers expected for annual service event April 29

Danville town officials are recruiting local teens and adults interested in volunteering for this year's Lend a Hand Day, which provides seniors with free yard cleanup and minor home repairs.

An estimated 150 resident volunteers will join forces with town representatives on April 29 to help neighbors in need. Volunteers can be 15 years old or older and they are encouraged to register online, town officials said.

The event will begin with a brief orientation at the Danville Community Center at 8 a.m. April 29 and then will run until 1 p.m. that day.

Local seniors who have basic repair or yardwork tasks they'd like help with on Lend a Hand Day can turn in applications though April 8. For more information on applying, contact the Danville Community Center at 314-3400.

Danville officials said people who want to volunteer with the town but aren't available April 29 can still take part in a variety of opportunities throughout the year, with events such as Eggstravaganza, May the Fourth Be with You, Kids Night Out or at facilities like the Danville Senior Center and the Village Theatre and Art Gallery.

All the opportunities are listed on the town's website. Community service hours can be earned for volunteering. For more information, contact volunteer program specialist Julie Mason at 314-3478 or
