Thanks to your overwhelming response to the River Market Serve Day in April, we're back with another Serve Day that's even bigger and better.

The Basics | 300 neighbors. 24 service projects. 1 clean KC.

Schedule | Each "cohort" or group of 80 volunteers is scheduled to show up at The Homesteader Caf at 1-hour intervals. For the first hour, you'll enjoy a hot breakfast and learn about the project you'll complete with your 10-person team. Next, you'll head out with your team leader to the "project site" to get your hands dirty. (Project lengths vary from two to four hours depending on the cohort you select.) After finishing your project, volunteers will come back together at City Market Park to celebrate with snacks, music, and a goodie bag which includes an awesome free t-shirt.

Cohort #1

8:00 Breakfast at Homesteader Cafe
9:00-1:00 Work on project with your 10-person team (snacks will be provided during this time)
1:30 Celebrate your work!

Cohort #2

9:00 Breakfast at Homesteader Cafe
10:00-1:00 Work on project with your 10-person team
1:30 Celebrate your work!

Cohort #3

10:00 Breakfast at Homesteader Cafe
11:00-1:00 Work on project with your 10-person team
1:30 Celebrate your work!

30 of the volunteer spots in Cohort 3 will be dedicated to non-rigorous service projects for families and those with minor physical limitations.

Event Assistants

Two shifts of volunteers are needed to assist with check-in, the after party, and other needed tasks. Shifts are 7:30-11:30 and 11:30-3:30.

Transportation | Walk, drive, Streetcar or carpool. The Homesteader Cafe is located just a block east of KC Streetcar's North Loop stop. Note: you will be responsible for getting yourself from brunch to your project and back to the celebration.

Projects | Our projects range from planting trees to removing graffiti, from picking up trash to painting trash cans. River Market, Crossroads, and Downtown Proper are the impacted neighborhoods for this Serve Day.

Parking | The Homesteader Cafe's parking lot is across the street from the restaurant on the NW corner of 7th and Walnut. There is additional free parking at the SE corner of 7th and Main.

What To Bring |Wear weather appropriate clothes that can get dirty like jeans and tennis shoes. Bring a pair of work gloves. A limited amount of work gloves will be provided for those who do not own work gloves.
