What We Do


What We Do


WHAT IS SERVE ASHEVILLE?

Serve Asheville is a community involvement effort of many local churches, businesses and individuals.  It began as a small group of people from Fellowship Asheville  seeing a need in the community and giving of their time, effort and resources to reduce that need. Today Serve Asheville exists to be part of the solution by highlighting needs and recruiting, empowering and connecting volunteers to serve local non-profits and private citizens.

How does this work? 

Serve Asheville hosts two annual service events in the community each year; one in the spring and one in the fall. These days are project-driven and serve local non-profits and persons-in-need in our community. Serve Asheville also serves to keep pressing community needs in front of those who can help reach the need. People like you.
