Do you need Eco/Green hours?

Dear Friends of Serve the City Geneva,

We have a couple of events scheduled to correspond with World Clean Up Day and wanted to invite you to sign up for one of the events.

A.  We are looking for a few energetic cleaners to help clear some of the overgrown animal cages in Bellevue at the Zoo Parc d’Accueil. The animals will be very grateful for your time! This will be a half day event 9-12:30.

B.  Another option is to help with some cleaning at Villa Julien at Ali Baba a  second hand shop run by Carrefour Rue in Geneva (click “Activités” and then “Caverne Ali Baba” for information.)  This is a full day event, from 9:00 to 16:00 .

It’s easy to sign up. Just send an email here: stating your project of interest (either “A” or “B” – or  “Either event.”) We will then send you more details on the project.   Let us know if you would not  mind taking up a the job of a project team leader some time.

As you have experienced recently the temperatures have been plummeting well below zero. A bitter cold is gripping the whole Europe. To date, over 200 people have died and millions of others are affected across the continent, including many in Geneva.

One of our faithful service providers, The Salvation Army, are asking for our assistance as it aims to cope with the increasing demand of people in need.

There is an opportunity to serve lunches to those impacted by these Artcic conditions every day from 11:30 – 14:00.

If you want to serve, please contact Richard Holt at:

Thank you for your time and kind consideration.
