Homeowner and Volunteers Registration

The annual Rake the Town event will take place on Friday, October 30 and Saturday, October 31. Registration begins on September 1.

CNA Surety is the premier sponsor of the event. We are very grateful for their financial assistance, which will be used to purchase leaf bags, water and gloves for our volunteers.

Calling All Volunteers!

Registration for volunteers is FULL!   Thank you so much for your support!  However, if you would like to be added to a volunteer waiting list, please email wow@activegen.org.

Inclement Weather Volunteer team leaders are asked to schedule a Rain Date for your individual team. If inclement weather, volunteers are responsible for raking their yard assignments as soon as possible.

Volunteer Registration – Team leaders may complete the Rake the Town volunteer registration form at the HelpLine Center link below. NOTE: Only one registration form is needed per team. Volunteer team leaders may also call the HelpLine Center to register by dialing 211.

Rake the Town registration form:



Rake the Town serves individuals within the Sioux Falls city limits over the age of 60 who do not have family available in the area to help with their yard work and are not financially or physically able to do the work themselves. Individuals under 60 with a documented physical disability are also eligible.

Homeowner registration begins September 1 and ends October 7. The number of yards raked is based on the number of volunteers available. We try to accommodate all requests, but assignments are made on a first come, first served basis so early registration is encouraged.

Homeowner registration: Homeowners may register to have their yard raked at the HelpLine Center by dialing 211.
