Athletes Offer Help With Leaf Raking

November 1st, 2012 | Categories: Uncategorized

SUNY Oneonta athletes will hold their annual Leaf Raking Community Service Event from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday, November 3.

Members of the SUNY Oneonta women’s basketball, men’s lacrosse, men’s soccer, baseball, softball and men’s and women’s track and field teams will rake leaves, free of charge, for elderly residents and others who need assistance in the Oneonta community.

Some lawns may be raked during the week prior to the event due to the busy schedules of the participating teams. It is helpful if residents have rakes and leaf bags on hand to supplement the supplies provided by the athletes.

Residents do not have to be home to have their lawns raked, but they must sign up ahead of time. To sign up, call Student-Athlete Affairs Administrator Liz Wagner at (607) 436-3590 and provide your name, address, a phone number where you can be reached November 3 and the approximate size of the lawn.
