Day to Serve: Our Unique Opportunity


As we hang up our rakes, put away our work gloves and look back on this Day to Serve season, do we really see what’s been accomplished?

 

Our parks have been beautified, our blood banks have been filled, our roads are void of trash, and our neighbors have been fed. While these are just a few of the reasons why we come together each year, it is really the “coming together” that truly makes Day to Serve such a success.
