More than 100,000 residents live in Allen, Fairview, and Lucas, Texas.
Can you imagine the impact that would be felt if 10 percent of our neighbors came together to make a difference?
We would create a tidal wave of charity that might just change the world.
Change the World Allen’s annual weekend of service returns to the Allen/Fairview/Lucas area on May 18-20, 2018.
With more than 100,000 residents in Allen, Fairview, and Lucas, can you imagine the results we would witness if only 10 percent of our local neighbors came together to make a difference? Together, we could create an overwhelming flood of love to change the world for the better, starting right here in our own community.
Change the World Allen unites area churches, nonprofit organizations, businesses, individuals, and families to work together to serve those in need of food, clothing, safe shelter, and care.
“Change the World Allen connects neighbors and organizations to serve together. There are projects for volunteers of every age and skill level, whether they’re able to give an hour or an afternoon,” said Rev. Jessica Wright, co-chair of this year’s event. “We can all play a role in making our corner of the world a better, kinder, more loving place to live.”
In 2017, 3,000 volunteers completed nearly 80 projects for a total of about 7,500 service hours.
Projects include home improvement; yard work; collecting, sorting and packing food, clothing, shoes, books and personal care items; and cleaning and support for Collin County nonprofit agencies. But we need YOU to make it all happen.
