Random Acts of Simple Kindness Affecting Local Seniors (RASKALS) began in West Chester in 1996 when 11-year-old Emily Weber sent a letter to the township administrator searching for a project that would help her community.

That initial desire evolved into what has become a twice-a-year event. Spring cleanup is the Saturday closest to Earth Day and Fall cleanup is the first Saturday in November.

RASKALS Volunteer group photoRASKALS volunteers have included families, youth organizations, government classes, church groups, older adults and just good neighbors. We always have room for volunteers.

The purpose of the RASKALS project is to help our older adults through random acts of kindness.


Chores include:

  • Raking leaves
  • Weeding flower beds
  • Picking up twigs and sticks
  • Washing first floor windows
  • Sweeping sidewalks
  • Trimming bushes and shrubs

Volunteer to help out senior citizens right here in the City of Fairfield.
