Lemont's Hope and Friendship Foundation to hold last Mission Stay Saturday of summer 2018

LEMONT – Volunteers are needed for Hope and Friendship Foundation’s last Mission Stay Saturday of summer 2018, according to a news release from the Lemont foundation.

Community members are invited to join the foundation and members of various other Lemont organizations as they “stay local” and complete mission work including bettering yards and homes and delivering care boxes, the release stated.

The event will go from 8 a.m. to noon Aug. 18. Volunteers will meet at 8 a.m. at the Lemont Police Department, 14600 127th St., Lemont.

Two teams of volunteers are needed: the yard work team and the care box team.

Care box volunteers will be responsible for sorting, creating and delivering boxes. This work likely will be done by 10 a.m., according to the release. The yard work team will mow, weed, trim bushes and trees, and clean up yards. Volunteers should bring their own yard tools and be ready to put their hands to work, the release stated.

The yard work team will leave the police station by 8:15 a.m. to start volunteering at homes.

Items needed for the care boxes include baked goods in zip-close bags, encouraging notes for those who are homebound or experiencing difficult times, and notes of appreciation for Lemont police officers and firefighters, according to the release.

Those who are unable to volunteer for the day can drop off donations between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Aug. 18 at the police station, the release stated. Arrangements also can be made to drop off donations Aug. 17 by emailing Executive Director Terri O’Neill-Borders at terri@hopeandfriendshipfoundation.com.
