No act of kindness is ever wasted

Love Riverside began in 2016 after Lynn was inspired in seeing other cities in California making an impact by bringing kindness to their communities through citywide serve days. Love Riverside hosted it's first Serve Day on October 22, 2016.  We initially hoped for 15 projects and 200 volunteers, instead, we celebrated an amazing day with 30 diverse projects and close to 500 volunteers who served their communities.  We also had incredible support from city leaders.  It affirmed to our Team what we already knew...that Riverside is full of people who have kindness in their heart and who desire to serve their communities in impacting ways.  

Our Vision

Love Riverside's vision is to inspire generosity that brings love in action to Riverside. We do this through leading a community-wide serve day, inspiring ongoing volunteerism, collaborating among leaders & organizations and communicating citywide happenings and initiatives within neighborhoods.

Our Goals

  1.    - Hosting an annual serve day called Love Riverside.  In 2017, our Serve Day was on Saturday, October 21, 2017.  We will be partnering with other organizations over the holidays and serving our community. More info to come!

   - Building a team of city ambassadors that will serve other efforts and engage in meetings and conversations that lift up the city of Riverside.

   - Collaborating year long with other leaders and organizations.
