GARDEN CLEANUP @ ELDERLY NEIGHBOR

09/16/2019


Council: 10020 - No. WINDHAM

Project Description:

THE RESIDENT AT ABOVE ADDRESS IS A 91 YEAR OLD WIDOW IN DECLINING HEALTH(also still in recovery from an October 2018 stroke). SHE HAS EXTENSIVE GARDENS IN HER FRONT & BACK YARDS NEEDING ONGOING CARE DURING THE GROWING SEASON AND WAS UNABLE TO CARE FOR THEM HERSELF. SHE WAS ALSO QUITE RELUCTANT TO SEEK HELP UNTIL LATE IN THE SUMMER WHEN IT BECAME APPARENT TO HER THAT SHE WOULD BE PHYSICALLY UNABLE TO DO THE NECESSARY LABOR. WEEDS HAD COMPLETELY TAKE OVER THE GARDENS. MY WIFE & I WORKED IN HER YARD, MOSTLY ON HANDS & KNEES, AND OVER A THREE WEEK PERIOD FROM LATE AUGUST TO MID-SEPTEMBER REMOVED IN EXCESS OF TWO DOZEN WHEELBARROW LOADS OF WEEDS, TRIMMED BUSHES & TREES, AND REMOVED CATERPILLAR NESTS FROM LILACS AND APPLE TREES.

PERIODICALLY SHE IS ABLE TO PROVIDE SOME MONETARY COMPENSATION FOR OUR LABORS. ALL MONIES RECEIVED FROM HER ARE FORWARDED TO THE COUNCIL 10020 GENERAL FUND
