About Serve the City
There’s a line in every city that separates the rich from the poor, the strong from the weak, the haves from the have-nots. It’s a street, the train tracks, a river, a sidewalk.
On one side there is safety, on the other there is danger. On one side there is security, on the other, fear. On one side kids go to college, work pays well, needs are hidden behind drawn curtains and consumable goods. On the other life is pretty raw.
It’s time to cross the line.
Serve the City is a global movement of volunteers showing kindness in practical ways to people in need. We partner with local non-profit associations that are serving people in need and create meaningful opportunities for volunteers to get involved. Serve the City creates events that mobilize many volunteers to serve in simple ways – sports, music, arts and crafts, meals, friendship and more. We are the connection between the good intentions and talents of people who could volunteer and a meaningful opportunity to get involved.
And that’s where it starts. We cross the line from where we are and serve. But that’s just the beginning. The dream of Serve the City is everyone serving. As soon as possible we invite those we have met while serving to join us, because what we really want is to cross the line together.
Serve the City is for everyone. It’s a revolution, a serving revolution. And it’s going to change the world.
The homeless, asylum seekers, the elderly, the disabled, children in need, victims of abuse. We know them by their needs. What if we knew them by name?
