Free Leaf Raking Service

Leaf raking in an elderly neighbor’s backyard, 2008

The City will be doing its FINAL curbside leaf collection next week, starting Tuesday Dec 27 in our area (east of Rhode Island avenue).

Keeping with its tradition, I’ve gathered a group of volunteers who can help in raking leafs for elderly and disabled neighbors in east Hollywood area.

If you know any such neighbor needing help in raking leafs, please let me know; I’ll hook you up with the volunteers doing this service.

This will be 4th year we’ll be offering this  service.
