Let a Raider rake your leaves

The 3rd annual Raiders Rake, a leaf-raking fundraiser sponsored by the JEB Stuart High School Athletic Boosters, is happening during the weekends of Nov. 12, Nov. 19, and Dec. 3.

Stuart athletes will rake your leaves to raise money for their teams. Prices start at $80. Donations above and beyond your quoted prices are 100 percent tax deductible.

To sign up, send your address and phone number to

Someone will come by, assess your property, and give you a quote. New this year: a pricing tier for smaller yards and a “neighborhood discount” for any three adjacent yards.

Annandale High School has a similar leaf-raking program Nov. 19 for residents of the North Springfield area. Sign up here.


  1. Jeez $80 for some kids to rake some leaves? I can pay landscapers less than half that to mow my lawn which takes care of the leaves too.

    1. Some people like to complain no matter what...

      This is a fundraiser to help the school not to please stingy people.

    2. Wow, just can't please some people.

    3. Not after Trump deports all of your undoubtedly underpaid landscapers, you won't.

    1. Yep! Have fun paying fair wages to hard workers. Oh wait - that's not what they wanted! Just to get rid of the rapists and bad people.
