Launching June 1

Get ready to have a blast this summer with Summer of Service 2024

We’re back and excited to kick off our #FirstServeOthers mission, and we want YOU to be part of it. Whether you’re a dedicated community enthusiast or simply eager to spread kindness, we have an amazing array of Social Purpose activities tailored to your interests.

You don’t have to invest huge chunks of time to make a difference – we’ve curated quick and simple ideas that can be done in just 30 minutes or less. And for an extra splash of summer fun, we’re bringing back Random Acts of Kindness Bingo, updated with fresh new ideas for you! It’s an easy way to add some extra joy to your Summer of Service. Grab our bingo card, tackle as many tasks as you can, and snap a photo or scan and share with us to be entered into a prize drawing for goodies for yourself and a $500 donation to the charity of your choice!

With a FirstService family of 29,000 strong, even one act of service from each of us can create an enormous ripple effect. So let’s dive in! Explore our event calendar for a wealth of ideas and inspiration to make this Summer of Service the most memorable yet. Together, let’s make a positive impact and enjoy every moment of it!
