Community Day of Service Project Partners Wanted

The City of Davis and local community groups are hosting a one-day community day of service on Saturday, May 19, 2018.

Post Date:April 13, 2018 4:57 p.m.

In a celebration of the Davis community, the City and local community groups are hosting a one-day community day of service on Saturday, May 19, 2018. With a goal of bringing residents and community groups together to engage in meaningful service for our community, we are encouraging local non-profit groups to host a project and join in the fun.

This year marks the fifth annual Day of Service. Last year close to 200 volunteers participated. In an effort to expand the scope of projects and get more people involved, the City connected with local non-profit organizations who become project partners. It was very successful with close to fifteen projects for people to choose from.  We are looking for partners for this year’s event.

To support projects, the City along with the Davis Community Day of Service Committee, will provide outreach, publicity, track outcomes and host a kick off breakfast, sponsored by local organizations.

Project partners will develop a project that will last approximately three hours, provide a sign up link or process for volunteer sign ups, communicate project details and instructions to volunteers, have an onsite project leader during the event and provide any materials necessary for the successful completion of the project.

Mayor Davis is especially excited about partnering with local agencies to contribute towards service to our community.  “We encourage local non-profit organizations to consider hosting a project on this day and being a part of the common goal of creating community and contributing to the vitality of Davis.” This is a family friendly day. People of all ages are encouraged to attend. Children under 14 will need to be chaperoned by an adult.

If you would like to become a project partner, please go to http://bit.ly/DDOS2018PARTNER to access the partner form.  Information on volunteering for individual projects will continue to develop and will be available on the City’s website at www.cityofdavis.org.
