York County seniors interested in help with spring cleanup, mowing, yard work, electronic devices, or with other household chores 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 intergenerational program that connects York County older adults and teenagers together.
For over 30 years, kids have been helping and learning from older adults through the Rent-A-Kid program. It gives individual teenagers the chance to help York County senior citizens, 60 years or older, with indoor and outdoor household chores.
The senior 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 (800) 632-9073. Information is also available at ycaaa.org.
