Fantastic Volunteer Social Event!
Thursday 26th September saw over forty Serve the City volunteers crowd into the funky Bosso Bar in the Grund. They’d been invited to celebrate the first ten months of Serve the City’s existence and hear some plans and ideas of what’s coming up.
It was an inspiring and motivating evening! We love our volunteers, who are so keen to be involved and give back their time and skills to help people in need in our city.
We recapped all the projects we’ve done in the last ten months: our Street Food project for the Homeless, which is now becoming a regular event; a Beauty afternoon for victims of domestic violence and crafts for their children; Fixing bikes and sorting clothes for children at a temporary home; Redecorating an entire children’s home over two weeks; Carrying out acts of kindness in the city with balloons, flowers and thank you cards; Cleaning up the streets and hedgerows of the Weiler-la-Tour Commune as part of the Grouss Botz.
It’s been a busy ten months but we’re so proud of all that has been accomplished in Serve the City’s short existence, and we couldn’t have done it without the enthusiastic support and involvement of all our volunteers. You are amazing!
Looking forward, we have a number of projects in the pipeline, including a Focus Day on Vulnerable Women on October 19th (more details to come very soon), our expanding our ongoing Street Food project, and some new potential partnerships. We’re also planning to translate our website into French and German, and keep spreading the word about Serve the City!
We’re looking for more people to get involved, both in our projects but also as project leaders, communications and PR support, visual communications (photography and video), translators, and lots more. If you love what Serve the City does and have the time and skills to get more involved, send us an email at hello@ servethecity.lu and one of our team will get back to you.
