Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Our community is facing unprecedented challenges. Serve Saint Paul: Neighbors Helping Neighbors is building a community of service in Saint Paul by connecting neighbors who could use a helping hand during the COVID-19 pandemic and recent civil unrest. In partnership with Cities of Service and AARP, this initiative engages volunteers to safely support community members who are experiencing barriers to meeting some basic needs due to age, mobility, income, or other factors. Working together as a community, our city will emerge stronger and more connected.

Find opportunities and sign up to be a volunteer.
