[ARCHIVED] Program Won’t ‘Leaf’ Residents Hanging

Leaf Angel Logo

Before snow and slush starts filling streets and sidewalks, Cranberry’s residents will be battling pesky leaves.

And for those needing assistance raking and collecting the colorful yet frustrating signs of the pending winter weather, Cranberry Township has a solution.

The Leaf Angel Program aims to match local volunteers to Cranberry Township residents who need assistance from November 1 through December 10. It is modeled after the Township’s successful Snow Angel Program that assists residents in need of snow removal.

The program dates coincide with the end with the Township’s contracted curbside yard waste collection date. The Township requires that all leaves collected be deposited in yard waste carts or disposed of in biodegradable bags and left at the curb for collections.  

Residents who need assistance can complete a “Request for Need” application on the Township website, as well as a liability waiver statement. A screening call with the resident and confirmation of need will be conducted.

Residents who want to volunteer can complete a “Request to Volunteer” form, that is also on the Township website. Volunteers must be 15 years or older or accompanied by an adult and must commit to maintaining at least one yard. They are also encouraged to work as teams for maximum efficiency. Volunteers will use their own rakes and gloves. Each resident who applies for assistance will receive five biodegradable leaf bags.

To volunteer or request assistance, visit cranberrytownship.org/leafangels.
