Service Projects at Serve the City

Come out and volunteer with me at Life Center Church. There will be many volunteer opportunities (that have nothing to do with religion) that are just about helping the people of Tacoma. Come out. Serve the City. Make friends of all ages and religious beliefs. You don't have to be religious to attend, however everyone will be expected to follow the golden rule and treat everyone with kindness. :)

Meet in front of Life Center at 6:45 PM. Inside the building, there will be people standing holding signs to let you choose which opportunity speaks to you. Last event, there were many opportunities ranging from weed pulling, creating gift baskets and care packages, serving food to the homeless, and attending a cooking class with pregnant teens.

Most projects wrap up between 8 and 8:15. We'll all gather in the lobby at that time. After the event, we will meet for a pint of beer and/or food at E9 before heading home.

As before mentioned, this is an event at a Christian church, but you can be of any religious background to attend. Respect is the expectation. Personally, I'm agnostic and I've always had a great time at these. If you have any concerns or questions, please post them here or email me and I'll be happy to respond!

**Those with children are welcome to bring them to the service project. However, the bar is 21+. Edited to add: if you have friends/family that are 40+, they are welcome to both the service projects and the bar if you would like to invite them. The more, the merrier when we're giving back to the community.

    Hey Kayla, do you have a link to December's serving opportunities? I'd like to know what is available before I get there just in case I run a little late. Or is it pretty much the same as last month? Thanks. :)

      Unfortunately the opportunities haven't been updated on the website. I will try to show up a little earlier to see if I can grab a list of the opportunities available.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
