‘Day of Caring’ postponed until May 15, due to weather

The annual Day of Caring, slated for May 1, has been postponed to Wednesday, May 15.

“We’re postponing because of the snow and we don’t have any shovels,” said Little Falls Community High School Principal Tim Bjorge. “It’s the weather — first of all, we need the snow to be gone, and second of all need it to be dry.”

Bjorge said lawns need to be in shape so people are comfortable with having their lawns raked.

More than 160 homeowners have signed up to have volunteers come to their homes for the annual Day of Caring.  No more applications will be accepted.

Bjorge said the logistics involved in coordinating and helping all those people and the  volunteers has been taken care of. “We’re gong to go forward with what we have,” he said.

Communication for the event is very important, Bjorge said.

“We’re going to send a postcard out on the week of April 22 to the people who signed up letting them know the Day of Caring has been moved from May 1 to May 15.”

Then as was done last year, Bjorge said, everyone involved will receive a reminder postcard five days prior to the volunteers coming to their homes. Volunteer teams are expected to be at homes between 9 a.m. – noon, Wednesday, May 15.
