Cesar Chavez Day Project with Regis University
On Saturday, March 29 Serve Colorado and Regis University are pleased to partner with the Town of Lyons, Foothills United Way and Metro Volunteers to sponsor a Day of Service to commemorate the life and legacy of the late Cesar Chavez. In 1962, Cesar Chavez founded the first successful farm workers union in American history. His motto in life was "si se puede" (it can be done) because he believed in the ability of people to dream big, and make change happen. On this Day of Service, volunteers will be completing service projects in Lyons, Colorado honoring César Chavez’s legacy of community service and civic engagement. The Town of Lyons community was severely affected by the September 2013 flood. Your support on this day will be extremely helpful.
Complimentary Bus Transportation will be provided from Regis University to the Service Project site in Lyons. To take advantage of the complimentary transportation, you must reserve your seat in advance. Please e-mail KellyAnna Foster with the name of the individuals who will be riding the bus. You will then be provided with information on where to park and the location to pick up the bus. Please sign up for the project first and then email KellyAnna if you'd like to reserve seats on the bus.
Volunteers should be prepared for a day in the outdoors. Dress in clothes that can get dirty and/or wet and be prepared for the weather. This is a rain, snow or shine event. Boots, work gloves and safety glasses are strongly recommended. Please bring a refillable water bottle with you.
If you have trouble signing up online please email Julie Phillips.
