CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS

Join with more than 50 other volunteers to help make a real difference in someone's life. Servants, Inc. will organize and direct multiple construction teams during the Week of Service. These teams will provide home repairs throughout Lancaster County for people in need with nowhere else to turn. Teams of skilled and unskilled volunteers will gather each morning for a light breakfast before heading out so serve. Construction projects will take place Monday - Friday, May 15-19, 2017. Churches can volunteer to provide breakfast for the crew one or more of the days of the week.

CITYWIDE CLEANUP ORGANIZED BY TEEN HAVEN

On the morning of Saturday, May 20, we will meet at Clipper Magazine Stadium at 8:30 AM for a short time of fun and worship, and then head into the city in groups to clean up the streets. Our goal is to clean the entire city in 2 hours, and if we get 2,000 volunteers, we can do it! Volunteers will be bused to assigned areas to clean, and will have wristbands letting them know their bus number, pick-up location, and time. Volunteers under age 12 will be given safety vests to wear. Participants who register in advance will have the option to select from 17 different zones within the city to clean. After the Cleanup, we will head back to the stadium for a free lunch and Fun Fair. The event is for the entire family (strollers are welcome). Go Beyond Citywide Cleanup T-shirts are available for purchase during free registration.
