Rake Up Boise™

“For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart each time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.” – Elie Wiesel

Every November we reflect on all we have to be thankful for; family, friends, good health and the list continues. We are reminded that the not all are as lucky as we are. That’s why this November we are talking about Rake Up Boise organized by NeighborWorks® 

Thousands of volunteers rake yards for veteran, disabled, and senior neighbors each November. Rake Up Boise™ is a beloved fall tradition for many families and one of the largest volunteer events in the Northwest. To date 451,159 leaf bags have been filled and 20,017 yards have been raked. But they still need your help!

Here are a few ways to get involved:

Volunteer To Help

Form a team to rake neighbors’ yards, serve your community, and have fun! You can create your own team of 5-20 people or we can help find a team for you.

Make A Donation

These proceeds will go toward covering the costs of this year’s Rake Up Boise™ and you will be entered in a raffle to win some awesome prizes!

Rake My Yard

Do you know someone who could benefit from Rake Up Boise? Must be over 65 or disabled and unable to maintain your yard due to physical or financial constraints.

Registration is now OPEN! The 37th Annual Rake Up Boise™ 2022 will be November 12. For more info, call  208-258-6222 or email rakeupboise@nwboise.org
