What's First Serve?

First Serve brings together more than 800 individuals from different faiths and backgrounds to volunteer alongside each other.

For the past eight years, First Serve has been an annual day of service, held during the second Sunday in September, led by First Congregational Church of Hudson in partnership with the  Islamic Society of Akron and Kent, Temple Beth Shalom of Hudson and supported by many other faith communities in Hudson and the Akron area.

This year our day of service will look quite different. Plans for First Serve are well underway as we think creatively of ways to help North Hill organizations amidst the challenges imposed by Covid-19. First Serve 2020 will be a Summer of Service as well as a Day of Service. Projects will begin in June and continue throughout the summer, leading up to a cumulative day of service on Sunday, September 13.
