Spruce Up San Rafael!
From April to October, the city offers monthly hands-on service projects. It’s your opportunity to enjoy some fresh air, get your hands dirty, and do something good for your neighborhood and community! Projects range from cleanups to graffiti removal to fixing picnic benches or play equipment at our local parks. These morning projects will get your blood moving and acquaint you better with your city and your neighbors. Check out the 2017 dates for the Days of Service highlighted below!
