Greenfield Rotarians on Thursday heard about another opportunity on how to serve the community.

Called JustServe, it is a way for those wanting to volunteer to find projects to give their time and effort to, no matter where they are, according to Rotarian Eric Borsini.

Borsini, who is also a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints which the JustServe program is provided by, said, “It is not about the church,” but about serving our communities.

He said anyone could submit a project to JustServe, and anyone can choose to volunteer their time to work on a project.

According to JustServe, the program “links volunteers with projects sponsored by humanitarian and governmental agencies, churches and civic groups.”

Borsini was accompanied on Thursday by two visiting missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Mateusz Pytlakowski and Caleb Walker, who spoke about the Biblical message of serving.

The program can be accessed via its website or by an app, through which a person can find volunteer projects to participate in wherever they are.

Borsini demonstrated the app during his presentation and entered Greenfield’s zip code. Four projects popped up in the surrounding area, but none in Highland County.

He encouraged Rotarians to look around the community, see what needs done, and post it on the website. The program is a simple way to serve, to become involved, and to facilitate the involvement of others in the community.

To register, find out more information, or to locate projects go to JustServe.org. The app is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Rotary is a global service organization. The Greenfield Rotary Club, established in 1922, meets each Thursday at 11:30 a.m. at Catch 22, 250 Jefferson St.
