Serve Day Questions

Ask Us Anything!

We’re excited to be back volunteering at the schools again!

We’ll keep updating this page through the summer. Have a question that’s not listed below? Feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have. We are here to make your Community Serve Day experience go as smoothly as possible. We’re in this together!

What time will the event take place at?

Community Serve Day is Sunday, August 21.  The hours are 9 am–1 pm. CSD volunteers will be expected to follow any requirements the schools have in place in August. Your school’s site leader will update you as we get closer to Community Serve Day.

What should I wear?

Work attire is appropriate. Please take into account the weather for the day. Volunteers may be inside or outside, depending on their assignment. Those working outside should bring protective gear (sunscreen, sunglasses, hats). Please bring a water bottle.

What sort of work will I be doing?

Outdoor projects at schools may include painting blacktop games, weeding, spreading play chips and landscaping. If indoor projects are approved for this year, these may include working on bulletin boards, cutting out materials, sorting and filing. Not every school will have indoor projects.

Can my kids participate?

Absolutely! They are welcome to work alongside of you at any of the sites. We would encourage you to be sure when you arrive that morning at check-in that you request a child-friendly project.

What should I bring?

Don’t forget to bring the liability release forms, signed and ready to turn in. This will make registration fast and easy. We may have online forms in place – check with your site leader. If you forget, we’ll have spare forms you can complete.

Please bring your own water bottle. We will have some on site if you forget. We will provide snacks, but you may want to bring your own additional food/lunch just in case.

My school doesn't have a site leader - can I still sign up to volunteer?

Community Serve Day is a volunteer driven event and once a site leader is in place, we can bring CSD to that school. If you want to learn more about becoming a site leader, please contact us.
