CITY SERVE

Thousands of volunteers unleashing over 10,000 hours of unprecedented compassion in partnership with local schools, city parks, food banks, blood banks, children’s hospitals, children’s homes, homes for seniors, homeless centers, first responders, juvenile centers, and so much more! City Serve isn’t an event, but a movement of people who declare in word and action, “We love OUR city,” and are committed to seeing it flourish. Register today for a project! It’s free and there’s a t-shirt included. Keep reading for project details and to get registered.
