Kick off National Volunteer Month with the City of Little Rock and its various partners. 

We have multiple opportunities for you, your family, your friends or your organization to serve.


No foolin'!  We will be in Butler Park (9800 Rodney Parham Rd., 72227) on April 1st celebrating National Volunteer Month from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. We are going to paint the outside of the bathroom, plant flowers, pick up litter and see what else we can find.  The Breckenridge Neighborhood Association will be grilling free hot dogs and offering free refreshments. 


Impact the Rock

A Day of Unity and Service

APRIL 15th

Kick off National Volunteer Week with us at the Animal Village, a park, or a street on April 15th.  We have three different ways you can participate: join one of our projects, create your own project and invite your friends or, if you are an adopter, work in your adopted area that day.

If you can't make the 15th, you can volunteer anytime between April 14th until the end of April 23rd. 

In 2021,we requested 150 volunteers for our city sponsored projects and 180 of you showed up and showed out.

Let's do it again!
