Please join us for 2 upcoming community service opportunities. 
  • Saturday, July 24th – 8:00 a.m. at the POPCE Park on Storer Avenue.  They need to build 10 benches that they couldn’t get done because of the weather from their Neighborhood Step Up projects in June.  All the material and equipment are on site already.  They need about 8-10 volunteers comfortable with this type of work.  


  • Neighborhood Step Up on Friday, August 20th.  This will be on Brinsmade on the west side of Cleveland, with landscaping, address numbers and light repairs.  There will also be an opportunity for porch repair and painting at the Julia De Burgo’s Art Center on the same day.
