The Nokomis Healthy Seniors’ 8th Annual Clean-A-Thon will be held April 24, 2010. This event is an important fundraiser for the Nokomis Healthy Seniors program and a key outreach into the Nokomis community. The annual Clean-A-Thon sends teams of volunteers to clean areas of their homes requested by seniors (e.g., kitchen, bath, yard). This spring cleaning helps seniors stay in the homes they love.
Nokomis Healthy Seniors Executive Director Kristen Whittenbaugh says “the Clean-A-thon is the largest, most important fundraiser of the year for Nokomis Healthy Seniors. With the funds raised, Nokomis Healthy Seniors is able to provide many free or reduced-cost nursing services, programs, transportation and many other services for seniors of the Nokomis community.”
The mission of Nokomis Healthy Seniors can be directly supported by participation in this important event. There is a goal to clean at least 18 homes.
Clean-A-Thon teams meet at Bethel Lutheran Church, 4120 17 Avenue South, Minneapolis on Saturday, April 24, 2010, 8 am to 12:00 Noon.
