Every Spring, join Orange residents as they take steps towards loving on their community. From Easter to Pentecost, we provide ways for individuals and groups to connect with their neighbors, strangers and non-profits through "50 Days of Love". It might be writing a note of encouragement, volunteering with a local non-profit or even making a donation. Whatever the opportunity, we encourage you to step out and make a lasting impact in your city.
On the 1st Saturday in October, we host a City-Wide Volunteer Day. We start the day with a Kick-off Festival, which brings everyone together, before volunteers head off to help out with the projects they’ve signed up for. It’s a special day where our whole community works together to practically serve and make a difference in our city.
City of Orange's Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony and Candlelight Choir Procession is held on the 1st Sunday in December in the Old Towne Orange Plaza. It’s a great time to see the tree, hear the choir, take tons of photos and join in on some family games and activities. We’re always looking for individuals who are willing to volunteer at the Winter Wonderland, a fun family friendly part of the Tree Lighting. Details coming soon!
