Programs like "Love Our Cities" touch thousands of lives and inspire Americans to serve and give back to their communities. Thank you for your dedication to the cities you reach."

"Love Fullerton is a great way to see what God is doing in our city. We can connect with God in church, through prayer and study, but we often forget God is at work and He invites us to join Him. I can’t wait to go to work with my God, my family, my church, my city, and my neighbors and in the process have deeper relationships with all of them."
Jason Phillips; Pastor Sojourners Church

Although we have done several Love Fullerton SERVE days together this one is my favorite so far. The involvement of our clients and your team was incredible!
