Last year, over 1,000 volunteers representing 14 local churches
served at approximately 120 different project sites. The projects
were conducted at people's homes, community organizations and in
public spaces. The projects included, but were not limited to
painting, roadside cleanup, wheelchair ramp construction, visiting
nursing home residents, yardwork and much more.
This year's event
will once again conclude with an interdenominational worship service
that evening. Last year's worship service welcomed over 1,000 people
to wrap up the day of service and camaraderie.
Volunteers can serve in many capacities, from carpentry work to
visiting nursing home residents. Project leaders will be assigned to
each project and will be responsible for overseeing the work of each
project and contacting the volunteers on their team.
