O’Fallon – Day of Service

City of O’Fallon encourages volunteers to come together for “King Day of Service” projects that strengthen and impact the community. The projects will run from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and all are invited to participate.

Fun, family-friendly opportunities are available, including creating paper flowers and decorating cards for those living in residential care facilities. All items are personally delivered in February, as part of Random Acts of Kindness Day.

“Volunteering to be a part of O’Fallon’s King Day of Service is a great way for kids and adults to join in creating something that will be deeply appreciated.” said Alexis Jaegers, O’Fallon’s Volunteer Services Coordinator. “Not only is the event a fun one, but more importantly, it provides volunteers with an opportunity to brighten the day of O’Fallon’s aging community, who truly value their creative efforts.”
