About Us

Community Service Day mobilizes hundreds of volunteers of all ages and interests to complete projects throughout Folsom that will have a lasting impact in the community. The effort is organized by the City of Folsom and numerous Folsom corporations, companies and nonprofits. The 2020 Community Service Day will be held on Saturday, September 19.

Our Mission

Folsom’s Community Service Day fosters community stewardship and enhances the quality of life in Folsom by engaging our collective time, talents and resources to unite our community, identify and address community needs, and foster a culture of volunteerism and giving.

Our Vision

Sponsor a single day community service event that engages Folsom’s diverse community members from all walks of life, motivate volunteerism, increase civic pride, and inspire service with future generations. The event is similar to a “community barn-raising” – mobilizing thousands of passionate volunteers to help with dozens of projects that make a positive, lasting impact in the Folsom community.
