Event Info

Save the Date: Saturday, February 28, 2015
When:  9am-5pm
Where:  The Holly/East Cesar Chavez neighborhoods

Registration:  registration for all Volunteers, Alumni, Team Leads, and Community Residents will open in mid-January

Transportation and Parking:
The Project tries to provide a quality experience for volunteers, while also respecting both the environment as well as the residents of our partner neighborhoods. We hope that all our volunteers will make every effort to carpool, ride our provided buses, or take public transportation to and from the Holly area to decrease our environmental and residential impact on Project day. We provide some transportation to and from the UT campus, and encourage the majority of our volunteers to carpool to Holly to check in and continue on to the work sites.

Shuttle Buses:
Shuttles will be available all day for any volunteers who would like to ride. Bus pick-up and drop-off will be at the UT campus, Student Services Building (100 W. Dean Keeton St).

Volunteers are welcome to drive to Project 2015 – carpooling is encouraged! Parking is limited throughout Holly/East Cesar Chavez, and we ask that you please respect the neighborhood residents and allow for their parking needs first. Volunteers who drive will go to Festival Beach to check in and attend the volunteer welcome, and from there will head to assigned work sites.
