1st Annual Rake Up Meridian

Shine Forward had an amazing opportunity to sign up as a volunteer team in our local community for their Rake Up Meridian event. It is a once a year event where volunteers rake the yards of disabled or elderly folks as a service project.

Here are some highlights from Rake Up Meridian 2015:

  • 64 homes raked for the senior and disabled community (54 in 2013, snowed out in 2014)
  • An estimated 700 total volunteers (580 in 2013)
  • 1,040 leaf bags distributed (870 in 2013)

We had the privilege of raking the home of a sweet disabled lady who shared with us that she was in hysterics when she found out through a phone call that her yard would on the list to be raked as a service for her. What an amazing feeling it was to serve her and see her gratitude!!

It was a gorgeous day!! We had a great turnout with our Warrior Girls as well as Shine gals who brought their families! 🙂

Thank you to all who volunteered!! We can’t wait to do it again next year!
