Update 11 a.m. Nov. 8:
Peter Brady said Thursday morning that the annual Rake & Bake has been postponed to November 17 due to Wednesday's snowfall.
"If we can't see the leaves we can't rake them," he said, hopeful that all 1,000 volunteers will be able to participate next Saturday.
Though the date has moved, the rest of the schedule remains unchanged.
Despite severe weather and a heated election coming to a head, Handy Dandy Handyman Ministries (HDHM) has reached their goal of 1,000 volunteers for this year’s annual Rake & Bake being held on November 10.
Rakers will be meeting at Brookfield High School (BHS) at 7:30 a.m. Saturday before dispersing to the 81 clients being helped this year. Afterward, they’ll be returning to the BHS gym for a hotdog cookout and fellowship.
Rakers should bring their own, marked equipment.
The Rake & Bake is organized by HDHM and its founder Peter Brady, who has been recognized as an “All-Star of the Year” by the New York Yankees and named a Huffington Post “Greatest Person” for his efforts helping those in need.
