SERVE WEEK 2019

A Week of Projects

For 2019, our goal is “Less is More.” We have fewer projects but want to leverage MORE people participating to increase our impact. Each project can accommodate at least 50 people – so there is definitely room for you and your family to serve. Projects are listed by date. Simply scroll through the list and sign-up for the one (or two or three) of your choice.
