Environmentalism & Sustainability
Is keeping the environment clean important to you? Our park clean ups help us protect nature and keep our community clean. At these events, we provide all the necessary materials to help collect trash, plant mulch, clean up after a storm, etc. Working outdoors is a great way to volunteer and contribute to creating a more beautiful Austin area.
Do you love animals? If so, this is the ideal community service event for you. We work with animal shelters and other organizations dedicated to promoting animal welfare. In the past, our responsibilities for this event have simply been to care and play with the animals as well as encourage awareness for their situation.
