Serve Day

March 9, 2019

Anaheim

Due to an overwhelming response there are limited Serve Day spots still available. We are thrilled about the huge number of you that have signed up or are trying to sign up to serve! 

Our goal of Serve Day is to help people get connected in an ongoing manner. 

If you missed out on reserving your spot or are unable to find a project that works for you, we invite you to do one of two things. 

1. Explore the opportunities at your campus happening on an ongoing basis. 

2. Identify a need in the community along with your family, small group or friends and meet that need together on 3/9 and then let us know about it at serveday@eastide.com. 

Thanks for your flexibility!
