Simple Service

Simple Service is a service project initiative to bolster existing efforts and inspire new ones. We want you to gather with the people who matter to you, learn what needs exist in your community, give or do something to make an impact on those issues, then, share what you did, so good ideas spread. At its core, we’re encouraging a community to see a problem and be a part of the remedy.
