I think these three action verbs can sum up what Serve the City means for me! There are so many needs out there, so many people looking for help and so many resources that are still untapped. If you think you haven’t got much to give, then you’re wrong. Probably, the most precious resource you have is your time.
The Serve the City International website has a very clear and succinct description of what STC actually is:
Serve the City mobilizes volunteers to show kindness in practical ways to people in need. We partner with homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, and other associations, and invite volunteers to offer
practical help and support. Read more
Every week or every other month, you can set aside a few hours to volunteer, meet new people and give hope! Serve the City is not doing anything out of the ordinary, just putting out there the needs of the city and looking for people like you to come meet them.
For example, Serve the City Brussels organizes every week meals for the homeless, activities with refuges and victim of trafficking. Every other month, there’s a focus day, which means that there’s a Saturday when volunteers come together to serve different categories of people in need, like the elderly, victims of abuse, children and so on.
Come this Saturday(17th March) in Brussels and volunteer for different projects. I can assure you that at the end of the day you will leave back home satisfied, content and a little bit tired 🙂 If you can’t make it, don’t worry, just click here and stay updated with the events, there’s always an opportunity to serve! So, go online here and check out if you have Serve the City in your city 🙂
I am thankful for such an accessible opportunity to help!
