Transform our community and uplift your neighbors during Serve the City’s 6th Big Volunteer Week from July 12 through July 16. During this annual event, individuals, businesses, churches and groups volunteer alongside one another in the Southeast Community of Newport News.
This year’s list of projects includes minor home repairs, yard work and gardening. For those who would like to remain inside and serve in a less physical way, there are jobs such as writing notes, making cards, and assembling food boxes. There will also be a family-friendly project each day so even little ones can volunteer and make a difference.
Check-in begins each day at the Downing-Gross Cultural Arts Center (2410 Wickham Ave.) at 8:30 a.m. and work begins at 9 a.m. Projects will end around noon and brown bag lunches will be provided to volunteers back at Downing-Gross.
