Help Wanted - Youth Needed for Youth Corps!

Victory youth we need your help! Many senior citizens in the Victory Neighborhood are depending on youth in our Youth Corps to help them get their sidewalks shoveled in the winter, lawns mowed in the summer and yards raked in the spring and fall. Unfortunately, we have not been able to meet all of their needs in this most difficult of winters, because of the dwindling number of youth participating. Several of our youth have moved out of the neighborhood and a number of them have 'graduated' out of the program.

If you are a Victory resident between the ages of 12 and 17 and would like to help out your neighbors and earn a little cash at the same time, please contact us at the ViNA office. You will receive a stipend each time you shovel in the winter, mow a lawn in the summer or rake in the spring and fall.

Please step up and help you neighbors maintain and stay in their homes!
