From Serve Day Website:
Serve Day is simply an effort for the people who call our area home to join together to make a positive difference in our communities. It began nine years ago with a small group of people who had a similar vision for improving the areas we live in. Since then, it has grown and is now lead by Better Together, Inc. and a team of community minded leaders who direct hundreds of volunteers in multiple communities. Projects can be community oriented like park improvements or they can benefit individuals like yard work, wheel chair ramps, or simple home maintenance.
There is no cost to participate in Serve Day. Paint, supplies and labor are donated or purchased from local merchants to complete projects. There are no strings attached to this day. We simply want to serve our area.
April 30th is the actual work day. We will start the day off with a breakfast for all volunteers as well as assign projects and supplies at 8:00 a.m. at the Malheur County Fairground’s Red Barn. Most projects will begin at 9:00 a.m. There may be some “pre-work” that will need done depending on the amount of preparation that will be required to complete the project. Please let us know if you are available to help on any of the days leading up to Serve Day when you register as a volunteer.
Anyone can be involved with Serve Day. Our hope would be that civic organizations, businesses, faith-based organizations, clubs, associations, and others would be involved. We would love to see the entire western Treasure Valley get involved.
For most projects, you can expect to be finished sometime around lunch, but depending on the project there may be a bit of pre/post-work that will need to be done. Please bring plenty to drink, sunscreen, and work gloves.
