Eric and Erin Hamm: Volunteer with others to Love Merced

On Saturday, Love Merced is back! What is Love Merced? An opportunity to serve in your community along with hundreds of other civic-minded volunteers. We have over 800 people signed up to serve already, easily making this the largest Love Merced event to date. Come join us! You can volunteer to help clean up our parks and bike paths or our neighborhoods and schools. Or, you can volunteer to write letters to our local troops stationed overseas. There’s something for everyone. A complete list of projects and more information can be found at lovemerced.com.

Love Merced kicks off 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 lovemerced.com. 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 family will be there and we hope to see you there, too!
