Fourth Day Community Servanthood Opportunities

Descriptions of the Community Servanthood opportunities available for each Walk are shown below.  REMEMBER:  You can sign up as individuals, reunion groups, groups of Emmaus friends, family groups, or church Fourth Day Emmaus groups.  Don't let the total number required for each event intimidate you!  Sign up as an individual or for the number of volunteers that your group is providing and others can sign up to fill in any gaps.

The link to our Community Servanthood signup page will be available as soon as the 2020 walk signups are available.

A Sales Tax Exemption Certificate is available for Servanthood groups that need to purchase supplies in direct support of their HNEC activities.
