What would happen if an entire city came together to love and serve their neighbors? Might there be more hugging and less fighting?
More helping and less blaming? More understanding and less hurt?
This movement is happening across the country in more than 90 cities and is happening in New Braunfels this year on Oct. 9-10 through Big Serve Weekend 2021.
In its sixth year, Big Serve Weekend 2021 is New Braunfels’ City-Wide Volunteer Days. You are invited to join hundreds of volunteers as we partner with nonprofits, city offices, and area businesses to bring awareness and kindness to areas of need across our city.
In a season of disunity, Big Serve Weekend aims to unify, inspire, and mobilize people from all backgrounds through loving and serving our neighbors in need. We know you love New Braunfels and want the best for it. What better way to show it than to give back to the city though volunteering at Big Serve Weekend 2021?
Big Serve Weekend is the catalytic event that inspired pastors, neighbors, city leaders, and friends to join forces and serve our city more effectively on a year-round basis. Serve Spot is the means by which these entities work together throughout the year to connect needs and resources in New Braunfels. Serve Spot is a volunteer-led grassroots organization with a goal of making serving simpler and more effective in New Braunfels.
The website, www.servespot.org, is host to a Directory of Care of 90-plus nonprofits and area agencies as well as a Volunteer Portal with dozens of volunteer opportunities at multiple nonprofits in town. Need food or help with an addiction? Find a nonprofit which can assist you at ServeSpot.org. Interested in volunteering but aren’t sure where you’re needed? ServeSpot.org has hundreds of volunteer spots ready to be filled at area nonprofits.
