Neighbors Helping Neighbors is set to return in May

Volunteers needed for annual service event


West Linn’s annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors (NHN) event is set for May 2, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a citywide event that focuses on “transforming the lives of people, young and old alike.” Volunteers from around the West Linn community come together on one Saturday morning to help fellow neighbors who are in need and cannot physically or financially care for their own yards.

Recipients of service are include those older than 70 years of age; people with limited mobility; military spouses with partners currently serving overseas and neighbors with other critical financial or physical needs.

NHN is city-sponsored, but run by a group of dedicated volunteers, with Cody Towsey at the helm.

“I was a volunteer at the first NHN and had such a great time that I wanted to stay involved,” Towsey said in a press release. “For the past six years I have seen many individuals and businesses share their time, resources and hard work in order to assist people who need some extra help in their yards. This event is a wonderful way to make new friends, serve others and be part of a team.”

Volunteers are needed for this annual event. Children with adults are welcome to participate. Sign up as a group, a family or an individual — or even come as an entire sports team.

If you are a homeowner or you know a homeowner who needs assistance, fill out this form: westlinnoregon.gov/neighborhoods/homeowner-application.
