Welcome to “For Our City Gilbert.”
Since we are the largest Town in the United States, we could probably say welcome to “For Our Town.” We continue to have a small Town feel, but with 220,000 citizens, we have “big city” amenities and citizens with “big hearts” ready and willing to serve. “For Our City Gilbert” includes representatives from faith groups, businesses, schools, and neighborhoods.
Our emphasis is on “VOLUNTEER CONNECTIONS” with plans to serve our community by organizing larger projects twice a year (October, April) and to encourage individual, family and small group service on an on-going basis.
We are the fastest growing community in Arizona with a great spirit of volunteerism. “For Our City Gilbert” serves as another valuable community resource to help us identify needs and find volunteers to meet those needs. As we do so, our community will grow together effecting positive change now and for the future.
Sincerely, Mayor John Lewis

Here is a partial list of Organizations and Departments
participating in For Our City - Gilbert.
We are deeply grateful to volunteers who have signed up for our many community service opportunities to occur on Saturday, October 20th. We still have needs, particularly with three high priority projects. The three projects are listed below, followed by the other projects that still have volunteer openings. Please note that our local projects are on the 20th as opposed to the 27th; there has been some confusion as the 27th is National Make a Difference Day.
Our best communication tool for providing a project status is on our Facebook page:
On the main page, all of the projects are listed with each as a separate event that can be joined by clicking the "join" link. This is the best way for volunteers to "sign up." If you join for yourself but also represent other volunteers, we ask that you also leave a comment on that event mentioning who you are and how many volunteers are coming with you.
Also, we have recently added comments on each of the projects indicating the number of volunteers that have committed so far to each of the projects so that everyone knows where help is still needed. While some projects are totally filled, we still need more volunteers on some of the other projects. If you have any questions on how to sign up or where help is needed, please feel free to call the project managers (see below) or call Victor Petersen on his cell phone ( 602-332-7432).
Thank you for continuing to make Gilbert “clean, safe, and vibrant!” You MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
