Spread The Love Nominations             

The City of Wheat Ridge, Compass Montessori School and Localworks, are teaming up to assist Wheat Ridge seniors and disabled residents with small household clean-up projects.

Each year, Wheat Ridge Compass Montessori School students spend February 14th, Valentine’s Day, volunteering in the community during their “Spread The Love” campaign. Along with the students, the Wheat Ridge Police Department Community Services Team and Localworks assist local residents with home clean-up projects. Small household clean-up projects that will be tackled by the students and volunteers could include lawn raking, weeding, outside storage removal, dog walking, shoveling, lawn blowing, small limb cutting and removal, and driveway graveling.

Students, officers, and volunteers will work together on these or other small tasks for Wheat Ridge residents/occupants in need of additional assistance with exterior property maintenance and care.

To submit the name and address of a Wheat Ridge resident who qualifies for the Spread the Love property clean-up campaign, call 303-235-2998 or email pschroeder@ci.wheatridge.co.us. The deadline for nominations is Monday, February 3, 2020.
