PRE-PROJECT RALLY

We always kick off our City Day by connecting together during our Rally at Beard Park! Meet new friends, visit with our sponsors, and learn more about how you can impact lives in Waterford year around!

This upcoming year will look a little different, with COVID-19 impacting our large gatherings, so we will be moving to a virtual rally! Once you sign up for a project, the digital rally video will be shared with you prior to the Service Project, April 24th. 

PROJECTS

After our digital rally, meet up with your project leader at your work site, and contribute to your city by spreading kindness and meeting needs around town! Projects range in nature, and we have something for people of all ages and activity levels. 

ALL of our projects will be following county guidelines, with social distancing and masks enforced. Additionally, we have a number of projects that will take place outdoors, within your family group only, and even at home. 

Love Waterford will be accepting various donations to support our local nonprofit organizations and contribute to projects that will take place later in the year. See below for a list of things that can be DROPPED OFF at Waterford High School parking lot or other locations, April 24th. 

For more information on projects, visit lovewaterford.org/projects and view our project list. 

Once you sign up for a project, your project leader will send you details as you approach our City Day, and be available to answer any questions.

Lawn Care

Get active by signing up to do some lawn maintenance for a single mother, a senior citizen, or a family impacted by sickness in your neighborhood. 

* Volunteers will need to have their own mower, weed eater, blower, and other misc equipment. Love Waterford will have a platform to accept applications or nominations of recipients, and contact them beforehand to better understand their needs. 

Drop Off Donations

Help meet needs in our community by dropping off hygiene kits, diapers, socks, non-perishable snacks, canned food, dog food, stuffed animals, and more. These items will be used to provide for those most disadvantaged and hurting in our community, such as foster kids, the homeless, and single mothers. 

* Some of these projects also have the option to stay and help with assembly or sorting.
