‘I Heart New Haven Day’ June 1

by Jane Hendrickson, Executive Director, Bridges of Hope I Heart New Haven Day, Committee Chair

Bridges of Hope is a group of diverse New Haven area churches from across denominational, social, and cultural lines that have agreed to come together as one to serve the New Haven community as members of the community.

This year we are organizing our ninth annual “I Heart New Haven Day,” which will take place on June 1. The goal is to serve the city through over 25 different projects with 450 volunteers participating from Christian Tabernacle Baptist Church, Church on the Rock, Vox Church, Vertical Church, Trinity Baptist Church, Christ Presbyterian Church, All Nations Church, Shoreline Community Church, St. John’s Episcopal Church, CT Korean Presbyterian Church, and several other churches.
Year after year, our church members, as residents and community members in New Haven, come together to build partnerships, serve immediate needs and give back to the city they know and love. People know these volunteers as the “blue shirts,” but they are also residents, public servants and leaders in the city. The day will begin at 9 a.m. on the New Haven Green with words of encouragement from the pastors and then the volunteers will be sent off to their projects to serve from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Here is a glimpse of sites we will be serving across the city. A full and comprehensive list can be supplied upon request:

● Organizing clothes and goods at Loaves and Fishes,
● Landscaping, painting for elderly community members.
● Cleanup at local public schools,
● Expanding a deck for a non-profit organization.
