This coming 2018-19 year, many opportunities exist!
Thousand Hearts 365 is a ‘spin off’ of the annual Thousand Hearts Crow River Serve Day and exists to provide volunteers who address community needs
throughout the year.


Please consider one or more of these choices:
 Do you like to garden? Join a group of dedicated volunteers who help maintain the beautiful grounds at the Ames-Florida Stork House in Rockford throughout the growing season. This project is family friendly and can fit your own schedule; partnering with friends is fun too! Choosing a specific area to own and maintain is a great way to help. Contact annettetryon@gmail.com

 Elmwood Cemetery in Rockford is a Signature Project for Thousand Hearts Crow River Serve Day each year. Last Spring, over fifty volunteers worked to uncover sunken grave markers and perform general grounds clean up. This Fall, we would like to repeat this and make even more of a difference. The date will be announced soon. Family friendly! If you are interested, please follow us on Facebook at Thousand Hearts Crow River Serve Day for announcements or contact annettetryon@gmail.com

 Join a group of Thousand Hearts 365 Volunteers as they return to Rockford Elementary Arts Magnet School (REAMS) to volunteer as ‘Reading Buddies’ in kindergarten, first and third grades. We will be expanding to other grades and subjects as we grow. You will be working with kids who benefit greatly from one-to-one attention. The program will begin the first week of October. This is a once weekly commitment; however we are recruiting subs/floaters to help accommodate all schedules. Some quotes from volunteers: “I am so thankful I got a chance to volunteer with kids”. “This is one of my all-time
favorite volunteer opportunities”! Please contact annettetryon@gmail.com and follow Thousand Hearts Crow River Serve Day Facebook page for further information.
