Fall is a beautiful time of year, but falling leaves often pose a problem for senior and disabled residents who are unable to rake fallen leaves on their property. The City of Nampa is seeking applications from both Nampa residents who need help with leaves and volunteer teams to assist them for the annual Rake-Up Nampa event, which will be held Saturday, November 13, 2021.
Rake-Up Nampa begins with a volunteer kick-off party in Historic Downtown Nampa. In the parking lot near the Nampa Train Depot team leaders can pick up supplies and volunteers are welcome to enjoy coffee provided by Dutch Bros. and breakfast provided by the City of Nampa. The event kicks off between 8:00-9:30 a.m. and teams are usually done raking before 11:00 a.m.
Rakes are available as needed and leaf bags are provided. *Rake-Up Nampa will be using paper leaf bags as we move toward a more environmentally friendly program. Once filled, these paper bags will be picked up on participating resident’s regular trash day by Republic Services for recycling.
Rake-Up Nampa is a free event for both residents and volunteers, thanks to these local businesses who generously sponsor the event: City of Nampa, Home Depot and Dutch Bros. Coffee.
