Serve the City Manifesto

There’s a line in every city that separates the rich from the poor, the strong from the weak, the haves from the have-nots. It’s a street, the train tracks, the river, a sidewalk.

Page 21: STC-Bremen 2011 Infoabend

Serve the City Manifesto

On one side there is safety, on the other there is danger. On one side there is security, on the other, fear.

Page 22: STC-Bremen 2011 Infoabend

Serve the City Manifesto

On one side kids go to college, work pays well, needs are hidden behind drawn curtains and consumable goods. On the other life is pretty raw.

Page 23: STC-Bremen 2011 Infoabend

Serve the City Manifesto

It’s time to cross the line.

Page 24: STC-Bremen 2011 Infoabend

Serve the City Manifesto

Serve the City sends volunteers to show kindness in practical ways to people in need. We partner with homeless shelters, refugee centers, orphanages, and other associations, and invite volunteers to offer practical help and support.

Serve the City Manifesto

Serve the City projects are often simple: sports, music, arts and crafts, language courses, games with children, serving food, and cutting hair. We are the connection between the good intentions of people who could serve and a meaningful opportunity to make a difference

Page 26: STC-Bremen 2011 Infoabend

Serve the City Manifesto

And that’s where it starts. We cross the line from where we are and serve.But that’s not where it stops.
