In the interest of safety for our volunteers and organizers we have made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the Day of Service 2020. Our 2021 Day of Service will be May 15th so mark your calendars! Donations will still be accepted as our community needs our help more than ever.
Each year we bring hundreds of volunteers together to help give back. The Day of Service began in 2012 as a way for Sammamish Hills Lutheran, to volunteer in the local area. It has grown to be a large interfaith and community event we plan to continue annually as a way to lift up those in need. We promise it will be a day that you will remember. Join us!
For one day be a part of a movement with hundreds coming together to help the community. You'll leave changed for the better and with new friends.
We work with groups that help in all walks of life from helping the homeless and food insecure students to our military and first responders, furry friends, you name it.
With so many different locations we hope you can find one near you! From Snoqualmie to Seattle, Kent to Redmond and everywhere in between.
2019 got 32 different faith based organization and community groups involved. Reach out to your community and help us get even more next year!
We can't measure this with an exact number but whether you are a volunteer or the recipient of our efforts, this event will have an everlasting impact on your life.
In 2019 our event had over 2,700 hours of time worked by our amazing volunteers. That's over 3 1/2 months of time in one day!
Need a Reason?
Get to know your neighbors while giving back. Meet like-minded people who want to make the world a better place.
Everyone needs help sometimes. You could be that helping hand that changes someone's world.
Volunteering has both mental and physical health benefits, it boosts your mood and reduces stress!
Other Ways to Help
Help us cover costs on some of our amazing projects with a monetary donation. It will be used for things like purchasing fabric for making blankets that we donate to organizations like Eastside Baby Corner or Lifewire.
Just because you can't join us day of, doesn't mean you can't be a part of Day of Service. We need help with tasks that happen before our event as well. Join us and get involved.
Tell your friends, coworkers, and family members - EVERYONE - about our event! Encourage them to like us on Facebook or volunteer their time. Word of mouth is a powerful tool to helping us accomplish our mission.

I’m out of town on the Day of Service. Is there anything I can do to help on a different day?
Yes! We always need monetary donations to assist in purchasing items like fleece for blankets volunteers make and flowers and mulch for the Senior's yards we spruce up.
There are also several events that are not on May 16 that you can absolutely help us with including being a part of our food drive in April or delivering some of the items after Day of Service.
I have bikes to donate for the Village Bicycle project but won’t be around on May 16th. Is there somewhere I can drop them off ahead of time?

My teens need volunteer hours…..does working the Day of Service count? Is there someone available to sign off the hours?
