NewtonSERVES is currently accepting project registrations for its 12th annual Day of Service to be held Sunday, April 29th, 2012.
Last year, more than 60 projects involving 1,000 volunteers were set up across Newton to benefit local non0profit organizations, schools and public spaces. Newton-based, non-profit organizations, groups of Newton citizens, community service agencies and Newton city agencies can create morning, afternoon or all-day projects in which community volunteers can participate. Typical projects include cleaning up parks, planting gardens, building and painting school bookshelves, spring cleaning at non-profit organizations and helping senior citizens.
