Student Assistance in North Toronto for Seniors
In North Toronto, the non-profit SAINTS program is a registry of students who offer help to homeowners with such seasonal outdoor chores as cutting grass, shovelling snow, raking leaves, planting, pruning and exterior painting. For both apartment and house dwellers, the students also perform a range of "indoor" jobs on a year-round basis, ranging from vacuuming and tidying to clearing out those high closet shelves you've always meant to tackle. Armed with a list, students shop for food or run errands in the neighbourhood. SAINTS walk dogs, address Christmas cards, move patio furniture, and yes, we even do windows. Seniors expect, that while students are not professionals, they will try their best, and will be eager to learn! Our current rate of pay
is $10.00 per hour, with a one-hour minimum, paid directly to the student when the work is done.
Also we offer students the option of using SAINTS work towards their 40 hours of volunteer time required for graduation (of course they aren't allowed to collect the pay for this time!)
