On December 5 Serve the City organizes ‘Plaisirs de Servir’.
Our volunteers will serve the many partner organizations we work with in Brussels.
As a part of ‘Plaisirs de Servir’, Serve the City collects food, toiletries and winter clothing to fill gift bags/boxes, which are distributed to people in need.
Register here to be part of the Team on December 5.
We meet all where the boxes will be assembled, have a briefing for the entire group and then we will share work and projects – therefore there is no need to choose a specific project in advance.
In addition there will be some special season events for the volunteers!
Schedule for the day – ‘Plaisirs de Servir’:
- Briefing: 12:30 – 13:00, location to be announced
- Serving: 14:00 – 16:00 (various projects and organizations, guided by project leaders)
- Debriefing: 16:30, same location as briefing
We would be grateful if you could collect products within your networks; your colleagues, friends and family that will fill our gift bags/boxes or by assembling complete gift bags/boxes yourself.
A gift bag/box can contain the following products:
- Canned Food, no pork
For example: canned soup, canned tuna, canned couscous

For example: chocolate, sweets, waffles, cookies
- Soft drinks or juices
For example: cola, orange juice
