This year’s event will take place from February 8-15th and features a new twist – in addition to sharing what’s special about Vacaville on social media and through activities around town, locals are invited to share the love and kick off the weeklong celebration on February 8th by participating in minor repair and beautification projects around the city. Volunteer projects will happen rain or shine.
A variety of opportunities are available, including indoor and outdoor projects to give back to the community. Volunteers can expect a four-hour commitment, beginning with a group meetup at Andrews Park in the morning, where Visit Vacaville will provide grab and go breakfast to fuel volunteers for their morning work. Following work shifts, there will be a lunchtime regroup to celebrate the good work done over a shared meal.
Volunteers will be assigned to projects by Visit Vacaville staff, however, anyone wanting to list special skills or make note of needed accommodations, such as needing to do jobs that do not require heavy lifting, can indicate these things when they sign up. Signups are available on Visit Vacaville’s website.
While all volunteer interest is appreciated, participants at this year’s event must be age 16 or older. Participants under age 18 will need to have a release signed by a parent or guardian to take part.
An event every day that begins at 8:00 am, repeating until February 15, 2020
