Change the World Weekend of Service is dedicated to transforming our local community through acts of service and opportunities to build relationships with our neighbors. Over the weekend, volunteers from many community organizations will form work teams to help local residents by doing general exterior home repair, fence repair and yard work.

Choose from a variety of community-wide projects that will be added to this site over the next few months.  Change The World Weekend offers children, teens, and adults the opportunity to pay it forward right here in their home community with a variety of projects that serve others who are hungry, in need of clothing, seeking safe shelter, and longing for comfort. Currently we are identifying volunteer opportunities, in the following functional areas:
