Great Organizations Across Uptown 


Uptown Day of Service 

Join your friends and neighbors for a day of volunteering with some of Uptown's wonderful nonprofit organizations. You'll serve a meal to our community's hungry, mentor youth working with technology, spruce up our recycling center, and more! Then, join other volunteers and hosts for a great time at Crew Bar + Grill. It's an event you won't want to miss!

Volunteering Options and Details:
