Join us for our Global Volunteer Day, this Saturday 8th of May !
As you may know, Serve the City is an international movement with organisations spread all over the world. On the Global Volunteer Day, all the Serve the City organisations, from Ireland to Australia, gather and spread kindness on the same day, in their respective cities, at the same time. So join us to be a part of our global volunteering movement!
