We understand everyone’s schedule varies, and you’re not obligated to commit to the entire four hours. Volunteers are welcome to join at their convenience and leave as necessary.

Location: 425 East MacArthur Street, between Oak Lane and Fourth Street East (map)

Workday Activities: Our primary tasks will include raking pine needles and oak leaves from the site’s numerous large trees and tending to weed and overgrowth. Hand tools will be provided, but volunteers are encouraged to bring their own if preferred. Please remember to label any personal tools with your name.

Recommended Attire: We recommend sturdy closed-toe shoes with socks, long pants, long-sleeved shirts, and gloves. Additionally, consider wearing protective eyewear, a hat, or sun protection.

Parking: We understand parking can be challenging during youth soccer season in the neighborhood. Therefore, we have designated Cemetery Volunteer parking inside the cemetery. Simply enter through the main entrance and follow the parking signs to the southwest section of the property.
