Have you been looking for a way to serve in your community? Last April, we had over 600 volunteers participate in our very first Love Merced event. Love Merced returns this Saturday.

You can volunteer to help clean up our parks and bike paths, even neighborhoods and schools. Or you can provide encouragement at local retirement home or volunteer a much needed helping building a community garden. And those are just a few of your options! A complete list of projects and more information can be found at

Love Merced will kick off this Saturday at 9 a.m. at Applegate Park.

Most of the projects will be completed by noon. You can sign up for a project at Many of the projects are kid-friendly and offer an opportunity to instill a sense of obligation to serve one's community in your children. Our entire family will be there and we hope to see you there too!
