Project Parameters

We will be choosing up to 20 project sites for Love Lakewood Day 2024, depending on size and scope. 

  • Date and time TBD

  • All projects must be within Lakewood city limits

  • Project sites may choose to have multiple projects at once for volunteers of all abilities

  • Project(s) should  accommodate at 5-20 volunteers for at least 2 hours

  • Projects should be easy enough for someone with little prior experience to complete

  • Once the limit of project sites has been reached, we will be adding projects to a waitlist

  • The projects you submit are not set in stone, you may add or change projects with clear communication with the Serve Spot team

Expectations of Project Sites

One person should be designated as point person in assisting with planning - this person should also be available to lead volunteers on Love Lakewood Day. The site lead must have access to buildings/facilities, such as bathrooms, on Love Lakewood Day. 

Serve Spot will provide water bottles to each project site. The project site may choose to provide donuts, bagels, or other morning snacks. 

There is an available project budget of $100 per site. This money should be used for supplies needed, such as paint.

Project site leads will give a welcoming speech to volunteers explaining:

  • What projects will be completed

  • Clear instructions on how volunteers can start their activities

  • How the project(s) will make an impact on your community

  • Ways volunteers can come back to the site to volunteer in the near future:

    • Have actionable items​
