Contact Minnewaska schools for Day of Caring project

The fourth annual “Day of Caring,” on May 4 is an event where students, staff and volunteers representing Minnewaska Area Schools (MAS) give back to “our communities for everything they have given us,” it was stated recently in a news release from the local school district.   

Students and staff of MAS are seeking those who would like their help. Senior citizens, homebound individuals and those living in the Glenwood, Starbuck, Lowry, Villard and surrounding areas who need assistance completing outdoor household projects are encouraged to apply.

Projects must be able to be completed within a five-hour time frame by a team of high school students and adult volunteers.

Projects may include window washing outside windows on a ground floor, raking yards, cleaning up gardens and/or flower beds, or another outdoor project. Homeowners must be at their home while the team of volunteers works on their project.

Those who apply and whose projects are accepted can expect a team of student and adult volunteers to arrive at their home between 9 am – 2 pm on May 4, the Day of Caring.  

For more information, call the high school office at (320) 239-4800 or e-mail Minnewaska Area Schools at

Not all applications are guaranteed to be part of the Day of Caring event. Registration forms must be postmarked by Friday, April 29 to be considered.
