My favorite Newton tradition is coming around again on Sunday April 27 – NewtonSERVES.
NewtonSERVES is an annual day of volunteer service where 1000+ volunteers fan out across the city to help out with dozens and dozens of neighborhood projects. All the projects, by their nature, are very local – planting, building, painting, etc but the effort is city-wide, with multiple activities happening in each village in the city.
If you have a project in your neighborhood that could use some volunteers, then consider becoming a NewtonSERVES leader for the project. It’s very straightforward. Just go to the NewtonSERVES web site and register your project.
Don’t wait though because they’ll begin signing up volunteers on March 25 and they hope to have all the projects for this year registered as soon as possible.
