A City Wide Volunteer Day
Festivities start at 8am
Love Fullerton is going to be epic!!
We hope you will consider participating in our first annual citywide service day called Love Fullerton on May 17, 2014. It is a partnership of 20+ churches, city government, the Mayor and City Council, the Chief of Police, local businesses, service organizations, public and private education, and local residents all working together to enhance the world-class experience of living and working in our city.
Our mission is to demonstrate kindness, meet needs and impact lives together. We are planning for 2,000 volunteers serving at 50+ different work projects. Along the way we’ll paint benches, teach life skills to at risk youth and spruce up some neighborhoods.
We will begin the day with opening festivities at 8 a.m. - which includes free food and vendors - followed by an opening rally at 9 a.m. The rally will take place on the plaza at Harbor and Wilshire Ave (121 E. Wilshire Ave). After the brief rally, volunteers will connect with project leaders for final instructions and head off to work by 9:30a.m. Then at 1p.m. we will gather back together at Hillcrest Park and enjoy lunch together (compliments of Jack Franklyn of Heroes).

ABOUT LOVE FULLERTON
Our Story: Love Fullerton began out of the success of Love Modesto. Modesto launched in 2007 with two questions: Why is our city on lists of the “worst cities in America”? If our churches were to suddenly disappear from their location, would anyone even care or notice? Motivated by the honest answers to these questions, Love Modesto was born. Now there are over 50 cities participating and Fullerton is the first of what we hope will be many more in SoCal.
Love Fullerton serve day is fundamentally a catalyst for the other 364 days of the year!! Under other love movements we hope to connect people to ongoing and deeper levels of commitment and service.
Love Fullerton partners with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, the City of Fullerton, local senior centers, Fullerton School District, Fullerton Collaborative, Coast to Coast, Red Cross, Fullerton ACT, F.I.M.A., Pathways of Hope and others.
At these serve days, volunteers engage in a variety of activities including food for the hungry, visiting senior centers, donating blood, building a house, and working in city parks and schools, among many other opportunities.
