JustServe.org with your family!

Please join us by serving in our community as part of Week of the Family.  You can choose to do it today or any other day during the week.  There are so many good organizations in Orange County who need our help.  That is why this years’ Week of the Family Service Project is for you to use JustServe.org to find an organization that your family feels it can help.

JustServe.org is a website where the volunteer needs of organizations may be posted and volunteers may search for places to serve in the community. JustServe.org links you to service opportunities in your community so you can make a difference wherever you are and however you want to serve.  JustServe is not for proselytizing or publicity—it is simply a service to help link community volunteer needs with volunteers.
