“Dear RUB, Your service has been invaluable for us. We are a retired couple on one acre (lots of trees). We are without local family help and RUB has been wonderful. Last year's group was an architectural firm with students who were delightful. Together we got up 50 bags. It was such fun, too!”

Bill and Andrea Sawyer

“Rake Up Boise™ is an event I look forward to every year. Not only does this event impact the folks who he help, but it personally impacted me. It created a bond between myself any my colleagues...Being a part of this as a volunteer showed me how easy it is to give back to others. I never thought that spending a few hours raking up leaves would bring so much joy to others in the community.”

-Michelle, Rake Up Boise™ volunteer and committee member

"Thank you so much to all of the wonderful volunteers that came out to my home today and raked all those pesky leaves!

You have no idea how very much I appreciate you all, and the effort you put in helping us, the seniors, in our community. I love Boise and its community, always helping and reaching out when help is needed."

- Victoria 2021 Rake Up Boise™ Recipient 

"Had a great day with our office giving back to the community today! Rake Up Boise™ is an amazing way to give back and we were able to help three different families today!"

2021 Rake Up Boise­™ volunteer

"Rake Up Boise™ is not only beneficial for the recipient, but also for the business that puts together a team. If you want culture in your office, put a bunch of employees in a yard of leaves and watch the teamwork, love, and happiness soar."
