What we do
ServErie restores communities by connecting people in need to resources. We believe that the challenges of our community will not be solved by just doing projects, but through building relationships.
Erie is filled with kind-hearted, generous people who desire to serve others, but many do not know where to begin. We mobilize and equip volunteers from all walks of life and connect them to the pressing needs of our community.
There are a variety of ways in which we serve: Summer School Initiative, ServErie Saturdays, Neighborhood Renewal, and the Tool Bank. All ServErie programs are designed to reach everyone. By supporting our mission, you support the mission of others and you become a crucial part of changing the landscape of our community.
ServErie Saturdays occur a few times a year. We equip volunteers from schools, churches, businesses, and communities to serve non-profits across Erie county.
As a result, many volunteers are connected to non-profits they have a passion for and build relationships with new individuals.
The ServErie School Initiative is a four-year long initiative where we partner with Erie’s Public Schools to offer our volunteer force, skilled labor, Tool Bank, and focus our efforts to renovate the school of greatest need in our area.
So far, we have taken on Lincoln School and Erie High School and saw over 3000+ volunteers.
Many organizations have spent years perfecting their expertise. We exist to help take organizations to another level, not to re-design what they have already started.
Our Tool Bank is a resource that any organization in the community can use to be more equipped to serve.
We have a team that addresses the needs of our adopted neighborhood. The location is from 6th to 12th Street and from Holland to Wayne.
We work with organizations and volunteers in the community to provide an ongoing relationship with a specific neighborhood beyond the quarterly events.
There are so many ways to serve with ServErie. Maybe you want to work alongside us, but don’t know where to begin. If that’s you, check out how to volunteer with us here.
Sometime serving doesn’t always entail being there, it means equipping the ministry. If that’s you check out how to donate here.
