Saturday WorkDays are on!

Looking to get your hands dirty?

With some changes in place, we will still be having Saturday WorkDays this school year!  I would love to have you and your team join us again.  This is a great way for volunteers to connect into the community and support the work God is doing in Wilmington.

A couple of changes due to COVID safety measures:

  • All staff and volunteers must wear masks while with us.
  • We will start the day off at different UrbanPromise locations.  Tell me you’re coming so we can plan projects, let you know where you’ll be assigned and what staff member you’ll be working with!
  • We will limit the number of people per site, so make sure you let us know you’re coming so we can plan accordingly.
  • WorkDays will be from 9-12.  We will not have our normal StreetLeader panel because of limitations with the number of people in the room as well as the safety measures in place in regards to transporting our students.

Things that are the same:

  • Projects will be similar and still based on the ministry needs (fall brings leaves to rake, there’s always cleaning to do, and we still have 2 buildings that we’d like to make progress on opening up)
  • Staff will be working with you to share about the ministry, their role, and the impact your team will be making that day.
  • UrbanPromise is still pressing into the vision, and our volunteers are a key part in that!

This year our Saturday Work Days will be…
