York County seniors who need help with mowing their yards during the summer months are encouraged to arrange for a Rent-A-Kid.
The Rent-A-Kid program, sponsored by the York County Area Agency on Aging, is an inter-generational program that connects York County older adults and teenagers together.
For over 30 years, kids have been helping and learning from older adults through this program. It gives individual teenagers the chance to help York County adults age 60 years or older with indoor and outdoor household chores. The older adult needs to be agreeable to a reimbursement of a minimum of $5 per hour or a negotiated rate based on the job.
Interested York County residents age 60 or older can get assistance by calling Hope Eberly at 717-771-9103 or 1-800-632-9073. Information is also available at ycaaa.org.
