restore weekend

Everytime there is a 5th weekend in a month, we serve the city in a two day event we call, Restore Weekend. On the last weekend of a month that includes a fifth Sunday, Restore Communities partners with several faith communities and local non-profits for a weekend of serving the Greater-Austin area. Our next Restore Weekend is right around the corner, June 28-29, 2014. Restore Weekend happens in several regions in the Greater Austin Area. Simply click on the different regions to go to the event's page for that region. Please note, once a project is full we cannot add any more volunteers to those projects, in other words, if you do not sign up for the project, do not show up to the project. Please take a moment and read through the projects below and choose the project you would prefer to volunteer at and sign up.
