Volunteers help community during Rake The Town event

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — It’s a busy week of yard work for hundreds of volunteers in Sioux Falls. They’re taking part in the community-wide effort to Rake The Town, where volunteers rake leaves for elderly homeowners.

Many businesses are taking part as a way to help neighbors in-need, and enjoy time together outside the office.

“It’s great to be able to give back to the community to help anybody get out here to do it themselves. It’s a great opportunity for us to get out of the office, kind of hang out with our co-workers and friends and be out on one of the last night days before winter,” Todd Kruse, a volunteer with Rake the Town said.

You can accomplish a lot with just a rake and a desire to help others.

“All of us are able-bodied and willing to do this so, it’s a great chance to give out and give back to the community,” Kruse said.

Teams of volunteers raked more than 200 yards on Friday. They’ll tackle 100 more Saturday.
