A Day of Service

Love for Alamance

Saturday, March 23

"For Alamance" is a group of volunteers who desire to see everyone in Alamance County thrive in today's challenging times. To do that, we must be willing to work together, and must be willing to cross over some of the issues that currently divide us. "Love for Alamance" is an opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together and serve one another.

"Love for Alamance" is a Day of Service coordinated by members of the "For Alamance" Faith Team. The various service projects will allow people to use their talents and experiences to meet needs that exist within our community. Sign up today to serve alongside your neighbors. By doing so, you will demonstrate to others that people in Alamance County truly do care for one another.
