Spring is here and the call to service has resonated in the air. This call is in the form of a challenge, a service challenge to be exact. We are challenging you to provide service tasks or simple acts of kindness every day for 15 days of April to help celebrate our 15 years of service to the Houston community and honor the National Day of Service which takes place on April 25th.

When you give back, whether with your time or money, you are making an enduring impact. You’re not only helping to make a difference in someone else’s life, you’re also fostering goodwill that will inspire others to make a contribution, and help in empowering your own life in return. Below you can find the service challenge tasks list. Each task corresponds to the assigned date. When you get started, make sure to take a picture of yourself giving back and post it to our page using #TheUrgencyofService. Have Fun!!!
