The strength of a society lies in its people. Serve Fresno is built on the belief that we should constantly be working towards a greater good for our fellow neighbors and that starts with giving back to our community. Help Mayor Ashley Swearengin and HandsOn Central California reach one million hours of volunteer service in Fresno by April 2011. That's only two hours of service for each Fresnan over the next year!
Improve education, strengthen the economy, care for the community, help your neighbors, bringing YOU and your community together is what Serve Fresno is all about. Get started now! Create a free volunteer account with Serve Fresno so you can sign up for current projects, stay up to date on future projects and log your service hours in the community!
In addition, the following agencies are also in need of volunteer support. Make sure you still sign up and log your hours with HandsOn Central California and help us reach our Serve Fresno goal!
