The Salvation Army of Dubuque Partners with Business for FREE Senior lawn services

The Salvation Army of Dubuque in partnership with a local business is offering lawn mowing and light lawn care to senior citizens at no cost.  Captain Matt Phelps says a business approached The Salvation Army looking for ways to keep its employees busy and keep them on the payroll. Phelps says they discussed options and came up with the idea of providing lawn services to seniors. Phelps says, “For many years, The Salvation Army of Dubuque has been active in supporting senior citizens in the community with a vibrant senior center. The center has been the site of many activities for seniors. Those in this age group may not be able to afford a lawn service  and may be vulnerable to COVID-19 due to age or medical conditions, and for safety reasons may not be able to get out and do a simple task like get gasoline for a lawn mower.”

Senior citizens who which to take advantage of the service need to call The Dubuque Salvation Army at 563-556-1573 between 9 am and 3 pm, Monday through Friday, to sign-up for the service.
