What to Wear and Bring:

Based on weather forecasts, it will be chilly (mid-50s) on Saturday. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty, as most of the service activities will involve some amount of physical labor, are outside, and you will likely get dirty.  Wear closed-toed shoes (sneakers, work boots, etc.), and dress in layers. Plan on bringing a water bottle, as water may not be provided at every site.
