HUNKS Donate Time & Trucks to Seniors (Video)

In a joint effort, NAPO (Nat'l Assoc. of Professional Organizers) organizers and College Hunks Hauling Junk volunteered their expertise to help low-income seniors from Volunteers of America;s Sunset Towers downsize, de-clutter, and organize their homes.

After a short education presentation, the volunteers assisted four senior residents with hands-on space planning and organization.

The average home in an active senior community has two bedrooms and a significantly smaller number of square footage than their previous home. Retirees also spend more time at home than adults under 65 years of age. Both factors lead to an increased risk of overcrowded rooms.

Cluttered and unsafe storage create hazardous surroundings for seniors and contribute to falls and injuries in the home. More than one third of adults 65 and older fall each year in the United States and twenty percent to 30% of people who fall suffer moderate to severe injuries such as bruises, hip fractures or head traumas.

These injuries can limit mobility and hamper independent living.

College Hunks Hauling Junk removed a number of unwanted items from the seniors homes and provided the labor and know-how with moving large items within the households.

Volunteers of America is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping older Americans live safely and independently in their own homes.
