is a beautiful time of year, but falling leaves often pose a problem for senior
and disabled residents who are unable to rake fallen leaves on their property. The city of Nampa is seeking applications from
both Nampa residents who need help and volunteer teams to assist them for the
annual Rake-Up Nampa event, which will be held Saturday, Nov. 5.
Nampa begins with a volunteer kick-off party in Historic Downtown Nampa. This is where team leaders pick up supplies
and often teams meet up to enjoy a hot burrito and freshly served Dutch Bros.
coffee or hot chocolate before heading out to their raking destination. The event kicks off between 8 and 9:30 a.m.
and teams are usually done raking before 11 a.m.
are available as needed and leaf bags are provided. *For
this event Rake-Up Nampa will be using paper leaf bags as we move toward a more
environmentally friendly program. Once
filled, these paper bags will be picked up on participating residents’ regular
trash day by Republic Services for recycling.
Nampa is a free event for both residents and volunteers thanks to these local
businesses who generously sponsor the event: City of Nampa, Washington Trust
Bank, Monsanto Vegetable Seeds, Zamzows, and Dutch Bros. Coffee.
