LINKS (Linking Neighborhood Kids with Senior citizens)

The LINKS Program (Linking Neighborhood Kids with Senior citizens) matches students from the Ottoson Middle School with seniors who need help with outside chores such as leaf raking, yard or garage clean-up, weeding, planting, moving trash to the curb, etc. Students are paid $7 per student hour, but may be additionally rewarded for commendable work. For safety purposes, students may not use power tools, such as snow blowers or power lawn mowers.

Snow removal is a popular request. The cost will vary according to the size and difficulty of the storm, and should be agreed upon at the time. Please note that students are able to shovel reasonable amounts, but cannot be expected to remove huge driveway or corner ice mounds left by plows. Those require heavy equipment and adult strength.

This program runs throughout the year.

We encourage students to work in pairs or teams, but they may work by themselves if they choose.

This program runs throughout the year.
