The City of Savage will celebrate its second annual Service Day Saturday on April 16 with volunteer opportunities, family fun and community partnerships. Everyone is welcome to attend this free, fun experience for the whole family, held in honor of Global Youth Service Day and sponsored by the City of Savage and the Harriet Bishop Elementary Service Club.
Participants can visit Savage City Campus, located at the intersection of McColl Drive and Dakota Avenue in Savage, and engage in simple, hands on service projects at various locations including the Scott County Library, Cherrywood Pointe Senior Housing, and the Fire Station.
Families can enjoy a free meal, including ice-cream sundaes, helping others, face painting, fire trucks, police cars, interacting with community members, and also pick up a commemorative bracelet. Show your bracelet at LifeTime Fitness on April 16 or 17 to use the fitness club for free. Bracelets can also be shown for free entrance to open play times at the Savage Sports Dome for the rest of April.
Service Day Saturday is also a good time to donate items to help others. Organizers will be collecting gently used books and toys, brown paper grocery bags, new toiletries (any size), non-perishable food items, and also spare change to help purchase goats for families in need in Kenya. All donations can be dropped off on the day of the event or at the Savage Library the entire week of April 10-16.
