During the Sustival Day of Service, community members engage with non profits to make a direct impact right where they live and work. Various valleywide locations.

The Clark Park Community Garden is a collaborative effort of the Clark Park and Marilyn Ann Neighborhood Associations, and Tempe Community Action Agency. The garden was created in 2014 at the site of a former municipal pool. Volunteers will be emptying out old tires and cleaning up the kids area of the garden in preparation of a project that is taking place in March.

Helping the United Food Bank helps our community. Volunteers may have a variety of tasks including inspecting food for quality, checking dates, sorting mixed non-perishable food into multiple categories, weighing, tagging and preparing packages for shipment to our main warehouse.
