Rake the Town

2023 Rake the Town

Rake the Town will take place this year from November 4-12

Volunteers are needed to help rake leaves of older adult’s homes in Blue Earth and Nicollet Counties.

If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up below.

When you register, please select your preferred date and location to rake and the size of your group. VINE will provide rakes and tarps if needed.  Homes will be assigned based on geographical area and we’ll communicate with the homeowner as to when to expect you.  Further instructions will be provided to your group closer to the date.

If you have any questions, please contact Adam at (507) 386-5574 or adamm@vinevolunteers.org.


Need help?

If you are over 65 or have a documented physical disability, live in Blue Earth or Nicollet counties and need assistance with leaf raking, call Adam at (507) 386-5574.

For those not previously helped, a short intake will be completed. While there is no formal charge for this service, a donation is requested so we can cover our costs and continue to offer this service in the future. The average donation last year was $40.
