Mid-Cities Care Corps is Actively Seeking Adopt-a-Lawn Volunteers

Mid-Cities Care Corps is Actively Seeking Adopt-a-Lawn Volunteers

Mid-Cities Care Corps is actively seeking Adopt-a-Lawn volunteers. Adopt-a-Lawn is the general lawn care of a senior’s yard during the growing season (March-September). Individuals, families, small church groups, scout troops, companies, and younger teens with parent supervision are all welcome!
We have more lawns that need mowing than lawn mower volunteers!
We have 35 unadopted lawns that are in need of a volunteer to care for them regularly. Most lawns are mowed every other week; however, the volunteer can set a schedule based on availability and growth of the grass. You are welcome to use your own equipment or Mid-Cities Care Corps can position a mower at the client’s home for your use. Please volunteer if you would like some outdoor exercise and fun in the sun while helping our senior neighbors!!!

Please call Jane at 817-282-0531, Ext. 120 if you would like to adopt a lawn of a senior in need of regular lawn maintenance.

We are always in need of volunteers to drive seniors to routine medical appointments and quality-of-life destinations such as the grocery store, pharmacy, and bank. Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we are offering the additional service of grocery shopping or grocery pick-up for seniors who are in need. Please contact Jane at 817-282-0531, Ext. 120 if you would like to provide the essential service of delivering food to our local senior neighbors.

Please welcome Sandy Moore (left), a new volunteer who will be helping with Transportation and Visiting Friends. Sandy found us on Volunteer Match! Wendy Werner (center) is going to donate her time for Transportation and Visiting Friends. She is looking forward to working with seniors in our community. Jonathan Lys is a youth and family minister and will be providing volunteer hours for Transportation and Social Outreach.

We are so excited to have them join our team of volunteers!
Thank you to all our volunteers! You are all so appreciated!

Please know that MCCC is following the CDC guidelines while continuing our support of local seniors. All Social Outreach activities have been cancelled until further notice. Transportation volunteers continue to drive seniors to routine medical appointments and quality-of-life drives for critical errands while taking the necessary precautions. Helping Hands volunteers continue to install wheelchair ramps and grab bars to address home safety issues. The Adopt-a-Lawn volunteers continue to mow yards and perform lawn maintenance and the Lawn Brigade is working hard to keep up the yards that are not yet adopted.

During these challenging times, please keep local seniors in your thoughts. Mid-Cities Care Corps continues to serve out our mission “to preserve the independence of senior neighbors in Northeast Tarrant County” . As local grant sources and businesses are impacted by the Coronavirus, MCCC will face challenging times from our support network. Now more than ever, MCCC and other local charities that provide critical services to vulnerable populations need your support. If you are able, please help ensure that local seniors continue to receive the services they have come to rely on from MCCC by making a donation to Mid-Cities Care Corps by clicking on the Donate Now link. Your support really makes a difference in maintaining the independence of our senior neighbors.

For example, a $100 donation buys enough gasoline for 3 Adopt-a-Lawnsfor a season or provides for annual lawn mower maintenance and repair. $50 covers an annual safety visit for seniors which includes new air filters, smoke detectors, and light bulb replacements.

Any amount is most welcome and will directly impact the well-being of local seniors. Thank you!

As you do your online shopping, there is no time like NOW to link MCCC to your Amazon Smile account. All you have to do is go to smile.amazon.com and choose “Mid-Cities Care Corps” as your preferred charity. For every purchase made on the Amazon Smile platform, Amazon donates a percentage back to MCCC. Please put your online shopping efforts to good work on behalf of our seniors!
