Each summer, we join together to see just how much we can do for our city in a single day. This year’s 1Day Hoboken has more opportunities than ever to serve and put love into action.
We’ll kick things off at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 22nd, at Church Square Park (4th and Willow). We’ll disperse across the city to our different service projects, then meet up later for an epic after-party. You can pre-register here.
No matter what your talents and interests are, you’re sure to find a project that’s just right for the hands and heart God gave you.
If slicing and dicing is your thing, help us prepare and serve lunch at the Hoboken Shelter. Or, if you’re not great in the kitchen but still feel called to reach out to this population, join us for a distribution day for In Jesus’ Name Charities.
The Parent-Kid Team
There will be plenty of child-friendly service opportunities. While the complete list is still being finalized, kids usually do well with our parks projects. They might also enjoy working at one of the schools we’re partnering with, like Mustard Seed, where we will be helping out during its annual community work day to prepare for next year.
Your Quirky Art Friend
For those handy with a paintbrush, we’ll be painting the stage at Hoboken High School and a fence at the Church of the Holy Innocents building on Willow. We’ll also be working with the Hoboken Historical Museum.
Do you know what a “light lock” is? Great. We’ll be cleaning the one in Hoboken High School’s auditorium, in addition to helping the staff get organized for next year.
What would 1Day be without outdoor projects? We’ll be partnering with the city again at various parks and public areas. We’ll provide the equipment. All you need to do is show up!
Of course, that’s not all. We’ll have about 20 projects total. We can’t wait to demonstrate just how much we love this city!
