JustServe invites you to help community
JustServe ORIGINAL
Main Street McMinnville posted its downtown spring cleanup in April to JustServe.org to attract community volunteers. Pictured are workers cleaning a back parking lot.

JustServe.org is a free website where volunteers in the community can come together to help their neighbors in need.

JustServe is new to Warren County with 17 projects currently listed. The website is free to use and see what projects are available.

JustServe’s goal is to provide a chance to make a difference by bringing community members together to better their town and to fulfill people’s basic needs.

JustServe is a national program that works with sponsors to connect volunteers who are willing to serve with programs that fit their interests. On the website, anyone can find a project and sign up in minutes or even post a new project.

Not only does the organization serve the community, it’s partnered with Tennessee Achieves to promote the Tennessee Promise Program to help students earn the service hours required to begin and continue receiving scholarships.

Students who apply for a Tennessee Promise Scholarship have to complete eight hours of community service each semester. This website can direct students to all kinds of projects in their local communities.

Amy-Jo Stanford oversees McMinnville service projects and says students can type in their ZIP code and find projects like Meals on Wheels or Warren County Animal Control to complete their service hours. When a student finds a project they would enjoy, they can contact JustServe.

Stanford says, “JustServe wants to get the word out that this is for everyone, not just students, to get involved in their community.”
