Send a link to a friend

[July 09, 2009]  Volunteers from churches across the Lincoln community will join forces again this year for the Together for Lincoln Service Project Day: Round 2 on Sunday, Sept. 27.

DonutsLast 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.

Any Lincoln resident or organization is welcome to apply for assistance.

Both assistance and volunteer applications are currently available at Action Rental, 101 S. Kickapoo St.; State Bank of Lincoln, Wal-Mart Branch, 825 Malerich Drive; and all partner churches. All applications can be mailed to: Together for Lincoln, PO Box 501, Lincoln, IL 62656.
