Get ready to have a blast this summer with Summer of Service 2023! We’re back and more excited than ever to embark on our mission to #FirstServeOthers, and we want YOU to join us. Whether you’re an enthusiastic community helper or simply eager to spread kindness, we’ve got an incredible lineup of Social Purpose activities to suit your interests.
Making a difference doesn’t have to mean making a big time commitment — we’ve got quick and easy ideas that can be completed in just 30 minutes or less. You can also join us for the ultimate dose of summer fun with our brand-new addition: Random Acts of Kindness Bingo. It’s a simple way to inject extra excitement into your Summer of Service. Grab our bingo card, dive into as many tasks as you can, and snap a photo or scan to enter a drawing for some awesome swag items!
Our FirstService family is 27,000 strong. Even if each of us commits to just one act of service, the ripple effect will be monumental. So let’s get started! Visit our event calendar for lots of ideas and inspiration that will make this Summer of Service the most memorable one yet. Together, let’s make a positive difference and have fun while we’re at it!
Visit our events calendar on Volunteer Hub for a listing of active opportunities and sign up for the one that interests you the most. Have something you’d like to share? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get set up!
Review our handy Social Purpose Toolkits page for ideas of things you can do on your own – some in as little as 30 minutes!
To make Summer of Service even sweeter, we’ll be awarding prizes all summer long through a series of Action Challenges. Everyone who completes an Action Challenge will be entered into a random prize drawing.
Use your VolunteerHub account to view and participate in the #FirstServeOthers activities and events that matter to you.
Show or tell everyone what acts of service you’re doing this Summer of Service when you post stories, photos or videos through your personal or your Brand’s social media channels using the hashtag: #FirstServeOthers. Upload a screenshot of your post using the SHARE button.
Give a “Service Shout out” to your colleague(s) who are making positive contributions at work and throughout the community. It can be just a couple sentences of appreciation to call out good acts of service when you see them.
Let the FirstService family know of the good work you’re doing by submitting a brief story, video, or photos of the service in action.
Help spread the word!
Spread the Summer of Service fever! The greater the awareness, the greater the desire to join in. Check out these handy resources:
