As we approach 2018, the Tricentennial Office is engaging with local communities to invite individuals to get involved with volunteer and community service projects. Through partnership and coordination with local non-profit organizations, the Tricentennial year will have many opportunities for you to help on capacity-building projects that will have a positive impact on people’s lives.
The Tricentennial Commission will carry out four Serve 300 SA ‘days’ throughout 2018. These four opportunities will fall within each quarter of the year. Several service projects will take place on the designated Serve 300 SA day in various locations throughout San Antonio. The service projects correspond to four categories: Infrastructure Improvement – February 17, Access to Care/Family Well-Being – May 1-6, Education Support – August 4, and Environment – October 13. These Serve 300 SA days will directly impact the non-profits, community agencies, groups, and Serve 300 SA Volunteers within the Tricentennial Community Service Initiative.
Through Serve 300 SA, our residents’ passion for San Antonio is harnessed and powerfully directed toward community progress. We will make a positive impact that will inspire continued service beyond 2018 and forge mutually supportive relationships that build a foundation for our next 300 years. San Antonio thrives on connection, interaction, compassion, and action. The Community Service pillar of our Tricentennial commemoration poses this challenge: How will you make your community better?
