Neighbors Helping Neighbors is a city-wide event that is transforming the lives of people, young and old alike.

Dedicated volunteers from all around the West Linn community come together on one Saturday morning to help fellow neighbors who are in need and cannot physically or financially care for their own yards.

* Those over 70 years of age;
* People with limited mobility;
* Military spouses with partners currently serving overseas;
* Neighbors with other critical financial or physical needs.

* Bring the kids. Children as young as two have participated in NHN.
* Sign up with a group from your office. There is hardly a better way to boost moral and bond with your colleagues.
* Come with your whole sports team. It's a great way to build team spirit and represent.
* Come by yourself. What a great way to meet someone new and interesting!

Just join in to help others in need and give back to this great community we all call home.

Thank-yous from recipients and volunteers:

"I'm overcome.  The front of my house looks like it used to many years ago.  I am so grateful.  Bless their hearts.  This kind of thing has never happened to me in all the years I've lived here, until now.  I'm just delighted to thank you." - 92 year-old Recipient

"My mom is elderly and not able to attend to her yard anymore.  NHN is truly a wonderful service.  The volunteers who worked in the yard did an amazing job and went beyond our expectations.  We feel so blessed and thank you to everyone for their hard work and time.  There are not enough words to express how grateful we are for this wonderful group." - Recipient

"I can't tell you how grateful I am to have so many problems removed from my yard.  For years I have hoped and prayed that I would be able to afford to have someone come in to do the work that I am unable to do.  I will never forget the happiness I feel because of the wonderful people who worked here that day." - Recipient

"NHN was the highlight of our family's weekend!  The homeowner we helped was so sweet, so appreciative.  'And it isn't even my birthday' when we planted the mums.  'I haven't been hugged for such a long time.'  The social interaction was as satisfying as transforming the yard." - Volunteer

"My family had a really great experience working with our awesome team on Saturday. We made a good connection with the homeowner, and are actually going to help her out with some dog walking." - Volunteer
