About I Love My City
I Love My City is a weekend of coming together and serving our community.
Strengthening Community, one project at a time.
When a community of people develops the habit of looking beyond their own priorities to identify a need and then actively engages to address that need, the community becomes stronger. Everybody wins!
Groups are encouraged to identify or create projects to address needs in their own communities or neighborhoods and to assemble volunteers and resources and work with project coordinators to complete these projects during I Love My City Weekend. Larger projects may involve multiple days, while smaller projects may be a simple act of kindness. There is no project too small.
Everyone can make a difference! Thank you to all of our I Love My City Weekend participants and partners!
