Each year, members of ELCA churches across the country dedicate one or more days to serve their communities in ways that share the love of God with all people. It’s an opportunity to celebrate who we are as the Evangelical
Lutheran Church in America — one church, freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.

Volunteers 17 or older (12-16 must have parent present) Wear closed toe shoes and shirt with sleeves. Bring your own water.
Meet at APLC at 8:00 am to carpool to the build site.

The Children’s Shelter
You can help build planter boxes for the children’s learning garden. The shelter has acquired easy-to-build beds and garden soil. APLC volunteers will level the ground surface, assemble and fill the beds so the children can begin planting on Monday.
Volunteers must wear closed toe shoes, bring your own work gloves and a shovel if you have one. Also bring your own drinks/snacks as may be needed. Children age 8 and older must bring a parent.
Meet at APLC at 8:30 am to carpool to the shelter.
BONUS – bring a bag of brown mulch to help finish the project.
