  1. I would like to volunteer to help some of our older residents with some light landscaping, ie, pulling weeds, clipping off dead folliage et. I was told that one of the churches in SCW does this. Do you know which one???

    Hello Mary. That sounds like a great idea! Sorry, we’re not aware of what church that might be. We know at one time Benevilla used volunteers to do small chores, shopping, etc. for those not able to do them. Try calling Benevilla at 623-584-4999. Best of luck.
