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 to complete projects are 9 am–1 pm. CSD volunteers are encouraged to arrive 10-15 minutes early to sign in, turn in your paperwork, and get your assignment.

What should I wear?

Volunteers may be inside or outside, depending on their assignment. We recommend wearing older clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty and that is appropriate for the weather. Some of the outdoor projects involve paint that will not come off shoes and clothing.

Hats and sunglasses are also encouraged in case you get assigned to an outdoor project.

What sort of work will I be doing?

As you sign in, you will be assigned to your first project of the day. As we finish projects, more projects will open up. You can work with our site leaders to find work that you prefer.

Outdoor projects at schools may include painting blacktop games, weeding, spreading play chips and landscaping.

Indoor projects may include working on bulletin boards, cutting out materials, sorting and filing.

Can my kids participate?

Absolutely! Kids 12 and under will need work alongside of you since there are so many different people and tools involved.

Kids who are 13-16 can work independently but do need to have a parent or guardian present.

Feel free to request a child-friendly project when you arrive.

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.

Your site leader will send out a list of tools that are helpful to have on hand. A pair of work gloves are one thing we encourage everyone to bring.

Can high schoolers earn community service hours?

Yes, this project qualifies for service hours. Just bring your form and ask the site leader to sign it.
