SERVE MAPLE RIDGE DAY
The first annual SERVE Maple Ridge Day hosted by CLA Maple Ridge was a huge success! Despite COVID restrictions, we were able to send a total of 67 volunteers around the city on Saturday, September 12th 2020 to complete various improvement projects.
Multiple generations were represented, from ages 6 to 80 years old we served our city well. We proudly partnered with members from 5 different congregations from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows, as well as the Salvation Army and our local government. 7 teams were dispersed around the city in bright blue shirts to complete various litter pick-up routes, clean up a local business storefront, write thank-you cards and give gift baskets to first responders, as well as offer a free car wash. We were blown away at the amount of litter that was cleaned up off of the streets in only a 4 hour period of time!
We pray that this event was just the beginning of a movement to intentionally serve the city of Maple Ridge. We are hopeful for what the future will bring and are excited to be part of what God is doing here.
