Love Your Neighbor Day
The Christian Church of Villa Park is sponsoring its sixth local action day - Love your Neighbor Day - on Saturday, September 19th, 2020 (Rain Date: September 26). We will be taking safety precautions due to COVID-19 this year and will only be doing outdoor repairs and yard maintenance. Homeowner applications are due by August 28, 2020
Volunteers will come together to help homeowners in need in Lombard and Villa Park. Volunteers are members, family and friends from the Christian Church of Villa Park, our partner church St. John's Lutheran, and a number of other participating churches in Villa Park and Lombard.
WHAT WE DO
We know that God is telling us to reach out to our neighbors, to help them in whatever way they need and we're partnering with other churches and organizations to meet that call.
Love Your Neighbor Day is a ecumenical day of service in our community which brings together volunteers to help people in need passionate about building community ties that will strengthen our bond to one another and to God.
Love Your Neighbor Day seeks out members of our community who need help maintaining or renovating their homes, but don't have the physical ability or financial ability to do so themselves. By coming together as one body, our team of volunteers will accomplish miracles in one day for these homeowners. We will form friendships with one another that will help us strengthen our community and lay the groundwork for future service to our neighbors in need. All materials necessary are provided, making sure everyone can take part.
Love Your Neighbor Day relies on your contributions of time, energy, faith and funding from our community. Please consider making a donation today!
Love Your Neighbor Day 2020 will take place on September 19, 2020. On Love Your Neighbor Day 2019, 93 volunteers came together to help 24 area homeowners.
Please email if you have questions or need additional information.
