Sign up today for the Fall CleanUp

Get your shovels and rakes and join forces to help with the annual San Juan College Fall Clean-Up project, Friday and Saturday, November 1 and 2, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

San Juan College students, faculty, employees and community volunteers will gather to help local senior citizens who need help with general cleaning chores in their yard. Volunteers team-up to rake leaves, trim bushes and branches, pull weeds and any other basic outdoor chores that seniors are unable to do on their own.

The project reaches homes in the Farmington, Aztec and Bloomfield area, but welcomes applications from any surrounding-Farmington areas.

“This is the perfect opportunity to help senior citizens and provide a needed service in the community,” says Lucy Haber, assistant director of the Community Learning Center. “A few hours can make a huge difference, and it’s a great project for individuals as well as for entire families.”

The San Juan College School of Business Principles of Management students will organize the event. The project is also co-coordinated by the Office of Retention and the Volunteer Center. Fall Clean-up Handout
