Love Riverside began in 2016 after Lynn was inspired in seeing other cities in California making an impact by bringing kindness to their communities through citywide serve days and other collaborative efforts. Love Riverside hosted it's first Serve Day on October 22, 2016. We initially hoped for 15 projects and 200 volunteers, instead, we celebrated an amazing day with 30 diverse projects and close to 500 volunteers who served their communities. We also had incredible support from city leaders. It affirmed to our Team what we already knew...that Riverside is full of people who have kindness in their heart and who desire to serve their communities in impacting ways.
