Team Moffatt Thomas Lends a Helping Hand to “Rake Up Boise™”
As Autumn approaches, the ‘City of Trees’ transforms into a city consumed by fallen leaves. The maintenance of these leaves poses a significant challenge for some of our neighbors who are unable to maintain their yards due to advanced age or disability. For the past 29 years NeighborWorks Boise has successfully made a positive difference in our community and in the lives of our neighbors in need by providing volunteer rake up services through their Rake Up Boise ™ program. The NeighborWorks Boise organization believes in “creating innovative housing solutions for underserved populations through strategic partnerships that contribute to building stronger communities.”
On Saturday, November 12, 2016, a Moffatt Thomas team of 12, including Moffatt Thomas attorneys, staff and family members, gathered their rakes and gloves and worked together with one common objective: to help a neighbor in need. With the same dynamic solidarity and teamwork that thrives in the Moffatt Thomas office, they filled a total of 25 biodegradable bags with leaves that will be used as mulch.
About Rake Up Boise™ Each year approximately 7,000 volunteers register to aid Boise seniors and disabled persons with the manual labor to rake leaves and prepare their homes for the winter season. Nearly 700 yards are raked and winterized each year, making Rake Up Boise one of the largest and most recognized community events in the State of Idaho. Since the launch of the program 29 years ago, volunteers have collected over 4 million pounds in biodegradable leaf bags providing over 2,000 tons of waste that has been used as mulch for various sites across the city and county.
