​Senior Yard Cleanup Project

The City of Thornton and The Senior Hub co-host yard cleanup projects in the spring and fall to help older, disabled or ill Thornton seniors. Volunteers help the residents with household tasks that the older adults are unable to physically do themselves, such as trimming trees, raking leaves, cleaning or caulking windows.  Neighborhood Services coordinates the volunteer groups and provides supplies for the project.   

2017 Cleanup Dates

Saturday, October 21, 8 a.m. to noon

Saturday, October 28, 8 a.m. to noon


Volunteer groups of five or more are welcome to participate in these projects. Volunteers must be at least 12 years old and there needs to be an adult present for volunteers under the age of 15.  The groups will be assigned two to three houses on the morning of the project day. If your group is interested in volunteering complete an application, which can be found on the right hand side of this page, and let us know what day your group is available.

If you have questions about volunteering contact the Neighborhood Services Outreach Coordinator at 303-538-7587 or neighbor@cityofthornton.net.


Thornton residents who are older than 55 and have physical limitations are eligible to receive assistance. Please contact The Senior Hub at 303-426-4408 to sign up for help.
