Love Riverside began with our first Serve Day on Saturday October 22, 2016. In a surprising twist of events, anticipating only 15 projects and 200 volunteers, we started the inaugural Serve Day with 30 diverse projects and more than 500 volunteers that served their communities. The momentum did not end there, over the next 4 years, we continued to host many serve days that brought wonderful volunteers together to make a difference around our city!  Serve Days benefit local schools, children, seniors and neighborhoods. The many projects included building toddler beds, crafts with Seniors, painting school dorms, collecting food, trash clean up and beautification projects throughout the city. 


And then came a PANDEMIC!

After initially sheltering in place, Love Riverside saw the need to expand our efforts to love & serve our communities in new ways…. 

Early on,we saw the need to provide extra food to our local food pantries who were assisting so many families.  In June 2020, we began hosting Food Drive/Collections and began asking the community (through social media) to collect non-perishable food items and drop off to our team of volunteers on a monthly basis. Our team would sort the food and then deliver the food to a local pantry.

We also began to increase our social media communications to resource our residents to understand what resources were available for them to find help in our city.  And ways they could safely volunteer at any of our events we were hosting.  Love Riverside has a strong partnership with most of our universities and we continue to work with a small army of volunteers where we do good in our city.

On October 10, 2020, we hosted our 5th annual Love Riverside Serve Day.  After making many adjustments due to Covid-19 protocols (like not being able to have a rally and projects all over the city), we regrouped and partnered with other nonprofits to drive thru & drop off of 1) Food 2) Diapers 3) Household items and 4) Hygiene items. These items benefitted those serving in Neighborhood pantries, families and our homeless community.

In September thru December, Love Riverside partnered with the City of Riverside under the CARES Act and began to plan and staff FOOD BOX DISTRIBUTIONS where we handed out a box of nonperishable food + produce box to families in need.  We hosted a total of 9 distributions where over 3,000+ boxes of food were distributed. 

We also partnered with NORTHGATE MARKET and assisted in planning a food distribution on November 6th where over 850 boxes of food were distributed to families.  Later, on December 17th, we assisted in providing volunteers for the Northgate Toy Drive.

Looking Ahead for 2021

As we are still in the midst of a raging Pandemic, we are reassessing and visioning of ways we can love & serve our city in this year (while still adhering to needed protocols).

4 Focus Areas for 2021:

  • - Food Insecurity

  • - Assisting our Seniors

  • - Ongoing Resources

  • - Annual Serve Day (October 9, 2021)

The need to serve our communities is greater than ever!  We will continue with our Love Riverside Serve Day in October but we are also working on helping our Seniors throughout this year as they have been hit hard by this crisis.
