Who can participate? Anyone! Projects are designed for families and people of all ages and abilities.

How can I register? Online registration will be open from June through September. Projects will be added to our website month by month. You can sign up to volunteer for a project when it appears on the website.

Can I register my family all at once? Yes, families are encouraged to register together!

Can I register my child or youth? In response to Covid-19, all children and youth under the age of 18 are required to volunteer with a family member.


Parking and Logistics

Each project is assigned a project leader who will communicate to you the location of the project and directions on how to get to that location. You will park at the site of the project.


How will I find out more specific information about my project? Once you register, your contact information will be sent to your project leader. Your leader will contact you with details closer to the actual date of the project. If you have any questions in the meantime, contact Sue Wimer at swimer@hudsonucc.org or Kris Stoehr at Krisstoehr@gmail.com

What Should I Bring to the Worksite?

Please bring your own lunch and snacks.

Face Masks will be provided or you can bring your own.

Work Gloves

Please bring your own hand sanitizer.

Tool/supplies: In most cases, tools and supplies will be provided. For some projects, you may be asked to bring certain materials with you. Your leader will give you details.


What should I wear? Wear your First Serve T-shirt from last year.  If you do not have a t-shirt from last year, please indicate you need one when you register online. Your t-shirt will be waiting for you at your project site.

Food: Please bring your own snacks, water, beverages and lunch to the project site.  Each crew leader will set aside a time for the crew to take a break and eat lunch together. This is a great way to get to know the people on your crew.
