Boomplanthappening en gratis frieten!

Dear Serve The City Leuven family, How are you? It's been a while since the last time we sent you an update, but the wait is over! We're back!!!! We are excited to announce two upcoming events in March and hope you will join us! First one is on Thursday, March 13 - ICare (KULeuven) is hosting a Thank-You Party especially held for YOU! Serve the City joins their great initiative to thank all the student/alumni volunteers that have been involved in service while you are/were studying in Leuven. Come from 12-2pm on March 13th at Inside Square Pausecollege (Hogeschoolplein 3 Leuven) for some exciting performances, a speech by rector Rik Torfs, and free fries (for fries, volunteers need to wear their ICARE pin, which you can request through Serve the City)! Please email us if you would like to come and get the pin! Please send a message with your name, your school (where you study currently or if you are an alum), and a volunteering experience you can remember to servethecityleuven@gmail.com subject: ICARE PIN before March 7, 2013. We can't wait to celebrate with you. See you there! More information - http://www.kuleuven.be/icare/icare-leuven/index.html The other event is Tree Planting on Saturday, March 15th at 14.00 - An exciting opportunity to help plant trees at Abby van Park in Heverlee. This event is organized by the Stad Leuven. There are a lot of trees and they really need your help! Watch for weather and be ready with your own rain boots and a jacket just in case. If you have a shovel or a spade, you should bring it! And, if you don't have one, that's ok, just let us know in your email to us and we will have plenty of other tasks for you to do (helping others, making drinks, etc.)! Please come join us in helping our city. And hopefully your trees will live hundreds of years! Email us before the 7th of March if you're interested with a message titled "tree planting" to servethecityleuven@gmail.com. Other that the two events mentioned above, we might add some more activities, so stay tuned! Greetings, STC Family

December actiedagen

Op Donderdag 13 december trokken we richting Grote Markt om aldaar de Kerstsfeer door "Serve-the-City"-free-hugs te verspreiden.
Op Vrijdag verwelkomde ons de bewoners van het Booghuys ons met een flinke glimlach maar vooral met een gezonde sessie ochtendgymnastiek. In de namiddag namen we deel aan het bingospel.
Onze Serve-the-City vrijwilligers bereidde het evenement Klimaatneutraal voor door het maken van materialen allerhande.
Anderen hadden dan weer veel plezier gemaakt met de kinderen in Fabota, tevens onze vaste partner.
Op elk van deze actiedagen konden onze vrijwillgers hun ervaringen uitwisselen en vervolgens vriendschappen smeden tijdens de lunch.
Het Kareelveld, dagcentrum voor de opvang van volwassen personen met een mentale handicap, kregen hun Kerstcadeau onder de vorm een geschilderde kamer.
Het was ronduit een fantastische ervaring om te kunnen deelnemen tijdens de Serve-the-City actiedagen !
