Serve & Learn Week debuted last summer and we had participants of all ages. Whether you’re in elementary school or retired, this is a great way to love and serve our neighbors and have fun while doing so. The theme is “give us our daily bread” and projects will focus on hunger insecurity and other basic needs. Participate one afternoon or all week. Times will be approximately 1-4 p.m. each day.
For those participating all day, bring your lunch and we’ll have time to eat, play and relax between noon and 1:00pm.
