The first annual citywide service day called Love Fullerton is set for 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 Fullerton.
The mission is to demonstrate kindness, meet needs and impact lives together. Over 2,000 volunteers will be serving at 50+ different work projects. Along the way they’ll paint benches, teach life skills to at risk youth and spruce up some neighborhoods.
Opening festivities will begin at 8 a.m. – which will include 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. everyone will gather back together at Hillcrest Park and enjoy lunch together (compliments of Jack Franklyn of Heroes).
The best part of Love Fullerton is that it is a catalyst for the other 364 days of the year. Click on “Other Love Movements” and see how you can be engaged in making a difference throughout the year.
