Information about TaskYourNeighbor


Time for a change

With the general cost of living surging on a daily basis, it's getting harder to make ends meet. Even the most basic service like lawn mowing or dog sitting have become extremely expensive, forcing many to trade some of their free time to perform such small jobs themselves and ultimately lose in terms of quality of  life.

On the other end the youngsters, who typically have more spare time, don't have many opportunities to engage in communities jobs that would help them to mature their sense of responsibility and also to stem a new source of income for themselves and their families.
