Read below to learn more about Serve Day 2021!
What is Serve Day?
Serve Day is simply an effort for the people who call our area home to join together to make a positive difference in our communities. It began nine years ago
with a small group of people who had a similar vision for improving the areas we live in. Since then, it has grown and is now lead by Better Together, Inc. and a
team of community minded leaders who direct hundreds of volunteers in multiple communities.
Projects can be community oriented like park improvements or they can benefit individuals like landscaping, wheel chair ramps or simple home maintenance.

Is there an income guideline for Serve Day Projects?
Each project is evaluated by the type of need. Priority is given to projects that address the health and safety of individuals in the community.
What is the cost?
There is no cost to participate in Serve Day. Paint, supplies and labor are donated or purchased from local merchants to complete projects. There are no strings attached to this day. We simply want to serve our area.
When is Serve Day?
April 24th is the actual work day with most projects beginning at 9:00 a.m. There may be some "pre-work" that will need done depending on the amount of preparation that will be required to complete the project. Please let us know if you are available to help on any of the days leading up to Serve Day when you register as a volunteer.
What about COVID-19?
Our Leadership Team will keep a close eye on the status of Covid-19 in our area and heed public health recommendations. Our plan now is to go ahead with projects that small groups or families can work on together. To minimize risk, all projects approved for Serve Day this year will take place outdoors.
Who is involved with Serve Day?
Anyone can be involved with Serve Day. Our hope would be that civic organizations, businesses, faith-based organizations, clubs, associations, and others would be involved. We would love to see the entire western Treasure Valley get involved.
What can I expect on Serve Day?
For most projects, you can expect to be finished sometime around lunch, but depending on the project there may be a bit of pre/post-work that will need to be done. Please bring plenty to drink, sunscreen, and work gloves.
