The task forces are collaborating with community-service programs at Lake Placid Central School, Northwood School, Saranac Lake High School and Tupper Lake Junior/Senior High School. As part of their community service requirements, and to foster intergenerational relationships in the community, student volunteers are available to help elders with outdoor chores or yard work.
Elders who need assistance with snow shoveling, raking leaves, other yard work or outdoor chores should contact: Patti McConvey, Lake Placid Central School, 523-2474, Ext. 4130, or firstname.lastname@example.org; Katie Weaver, Northwood School, 523-3357 or email@example.com; Christine Bell, Saranac Lake High School, 891-4450 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Diane Helms, Tupper Lake Junior/Senior High School, 359-3322, Ext. 2006, or email@example.com.
The community service program director in each school matches the elder’s need for assistance with a student who is performing his or her community-service requirements.
