Day of Peace
What is a Day of Peace?
A Day of Peace is a volunteer service opportunity coordinated by Project Peace East Bay to bring together local faith-based groups, non-profit organizations, and East Bay social service providers.
Project Peace's hope is that through these partnerships our local East Bay communities will become more environmentally, economically and socially sustainable.
A Day of Peace is an opportunity for people from very different backgrounds to come together simply to love and serve our shared community. Whether you are a friend, neighbor, colleague, someone who cares very deeply about the agency that is being served, or someone who just wants to make new friends, the Day of Peace is a great place for you to get connected into working towards more sustainable communities.
What does a Day of Peace look like?
A Day of Peace usually involves community “sweat equity.” Landscaping, construction, painting, organizing, cleaning up a watershed—all of these activities and more comprise a Day of Peace. See photos on our Flickr collection. Join us on Facebook.
