The program is now launching the outreach and fundraising processes; they're beginning by helping local alumni and friends get a little yard work done.

TaB is offering to send teams of roughly five people to local homes to perform tasks of the owners' choosing. Tasks may include raking leaves, washing windows, pruning, weeding, hanging up holiday lights, etc.

Saturday, Nov. 20 and Sunday Nov. 21

9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
