Big Day of Service is a grassroots, all-volunteer led initiative to make a positive impact in Orangevale and Fair Oaks. We had our very first event in 2018 with over 1,000 people participating. We hope to unite the community around the idea that we can all make things better by working together. In 2019, we expect to rally 1,000 volunteers and tackle at least 35 local projects to beautify and improve our neighborhoods. A group of community leaders — including representatives from County Supervisor Sue Frost’s office, as well as individual leaders, local organizations, businesses, and churches — has been planning the event and is looking for project suggestions as well as more project leaders and volunteers. We believe that communities get better when they serve together, and everyone can play a role in making this happen.
