Many of our Saturday Projects are in partnership with Project Peace. Project Peace East Bay cultivates partnerships with churches, volunteers, and local nonprofits to engage with justice beyond one church's capacity. What started with one church and 100 volunteers has rapidly grown to engaging 2,000+ volunteers with more than 6,500 hours of service. If you see a site with the Project Peace logo, you’ll be partnering alongside 60 other churches from the East Bay - each a hand, foot, and shoulder of the body of Christ - to meet local needs and support good work already being done in the community. Here's to serving together!
