Change the World Weekend returns to Allen May 13-15, 2022 for its 11th year of inspiring, equipping, and mobilizing members of the Allen-Fairview-Lucas community to serve our neighbors and change the world in positive ways.
Our volunteers work together throughout the year to increase civic engagement to build a stronger and more resilient community. Change The World Weekend is when we kick-off another year of making life better for others.
Change the World Allen is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to transforming our local community through acts of service and opportunities to build relationships with our neighbors. Over one weekend each spring, volunteers from many community organizations form work teams to perform general exterior home repair, fence repair, and yard work for our neighbors in need.
You are invited to volunteer by choosing from a variety of community-wide projects listed on the changetheworldallen.org website.
The event offers children, teens, and adults the opportunity to pay it forward right here in their home community. Projects serve others who are hungry, in need of clothing, seeking safe shelter, and longing for comfort.
We invite you to accept the challenge to join your neighbors to Change the World.
