Worthington will spring alive with the spirit of volunteerism on Service Day this Saturday.

From 9 a.m. until noon, volunteers of all ages will go to the homes of senior citizens to help with jobs ranging from yard work to washing floors and windows to turning mattresses.

So far, 60 jobs have been lined up and more assignments are being accepted by Leadership Worthington, which sponsors the annual event.

Many of the seniors receiving help are return customers, requesting the same jobs to be done each year.

"The seniors are very appreciative, we get compliments whenever we do this," said Jim Sauer, one of the organizers.

Once the jobs at the seniors' homes are complete, volunteers start on jobs at local churches, schools, and parks.

Volunteers are Leadership Worthington alumni and class members, teams from service clubs or companies, students and families.

Anyone who wants to help can show up at Kilbourne Middle School, 50 E. Granville Road, between 8 and 9 p.m. on Saturday.

The Kiwanis Club of Northern Columbus will serve breakfast beginning at 8. Winners of the Leadership for a Lifetime awards will also be announced during breakfast.

Anyone with a job they would like to have done by Service Day volunteers can call Leadership Worthington at 883-3057.
