Weekends of Hope

  • CityServe Day is a no-strings-attached, city-wide day of service where “all are welcome to serve and be served.” The motivation is simple – when a city prospers, so do its people. Join us as we serve schools, parks, local non-profit organizations, and neighborhoods, serving some of the most prominent needs in our city. Volunteering and community connection are proven protective factors for mental health. We invite people to consider volunteering this day as one of our weekends of hope! https://cosiloveyou.com/
