RASKALSRandom 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.
