City-Wide Serve Day
Help make a difference in our city! Let’s volunteer together at the 3rd annual City-Wide Serve Day November 4, 2023. Join businesses, faith communities, nonprofits, City Hall, and all who love our city and want to see it thrive! Open to everyone and all ages.
City Wide Serve Day runs from 7:30 AM - 12 PM, beginning with a kick-off rally from 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM at Free Chapel, 2777 McGaw Ave, Irvine, CA 92614. Volunteers will receive breakfast burritos, coffee, Tshirts, and a short pump-up rally. Mayor Khan and other civic leaders will help kick off the event. Volunteers will be dismissed promptly so that projects will run approximately from 9 AM - 12 PM.
Love Irvine (www.loveirvine.org) is the organization behind Serve Day and who is coordinating the event. The hope for Serve Day is that through volunteering, we connect with our neighbors which creates greater appreciation for our incredible city, and leads to ongoing involvement by volunteering in various nonprofits and organizations throughout the year.
We have over 20 service projects with space for over 700 volunteers. Get Inspired: Watch a short video from our 2022 Serve Day here: About Love Irvine.
