Love Oakdale's City-Wide Volunteer Day is an exciting day for our community. Hundreds of volunteers gather for a kick off rally before dispersing throughout to love on the people and places of Oakdale. Last year over 400 people completed 40 projects and we're hoping to beat that this year!
Oakdale Community Park near the skate park. Enter under the arch on the corner of H and Yosemite. At 8:00 a.m. on April 29, 2023 we'll begin checking in our beloved volunteers. Our rally will begin promptly at 8:30.
You'll receive your free t-shirt, sign cards for the shut-ins we'll be delivering cookies to, check out raffle items, and enjoy some good music.
Yes! Every volunteer will receive a free ticket when they arrive. Additionally, you will receive a ticket for each and every non-perishable food item you bring to donate to Oakdale Family Resource and Counseling Center. We have raffle prizes from a number of Oakdale's finest small businesses; each valued at $100 or more! We will limit winners to one prize per family to share the joy.
Absolutely! Muffins and quiche from Bloomingcamp Ranch, fruit, water and juice from Grocery Outlet and coffee from Refuge Coffee and Starbucks. Come feast before you work!
We'll hear from important people, thank our amazing sponsors, hand out our, "Thanks for Loving Oakdale Well" awards, give away raffle prizes and more!
We'll dismiss you to find your project sign which will be lined up on the edge of the grass. Your project leader will meet you and give you some instructions. We'll snap a picture of your team and then you'll head to your project site.
In the description for your project you can see the scope of work and recommended tools to bring. Bring water, sunscreen, gloves, and any needed tools or equipment. Your project leader will be in touch with you about specific details.
It really depends on your project. When you've completed the work at your project site, you are free to go. Projects should finish by noon; some will finish much earlier.
Call me! I'll direct you to a project that could use additional help.
I do this because Jesus tells us to love one another and by physically serving the people and places of our city, we are doing just that! Others serve at Love Oakdale for different reasons. I'm thankful we can all serve our city together whatever our motivation.
