5th Annual Transform Week
June 22 - June 26
Make a big impact on a Cedar Rapids neighborhood during Transform Week. This annual event brings together community volunteers to complete projects that make our neighborhoods safer, healthier, and more attractive.
Projects could include:
- Light construction
- Window/door replacement
- Painting or siding
- Installing new floors
- Cleaning or removing debris
Work side-by-side with other volunteers in the community for a day or the entire week. Projects will be in the Taylor and Time Check neighborhoods of Cedar Rapids.
All skill levels are welcome—construction experience isn’t required. We’ll work to connect volunteers with projects that match their skill level and experience, and no one will be expected to do work that they are not comfortable with. If you have any special skills, please indicate so on the volunteer registration form and we may contact you in advance to match you with a project that requires your skill set.
We’re expecting between 300-400 volunteers throughout the week. We’ll provide tools and safety equipment for whatever task you take on. Most work days go from 8:00 – 3:30 with a break for lunch. Lunch and snacks are provided.
If you would like to volunteer for Transform Week 2020, our online volunteer registration will open in March.
If you have any questions or would like to be added to our Transform email list, please contact us at 319-362-2214 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
