Our mission is to serve the city of Irvine by uniting the the public sector, non-profits, faith community, businesses, and all residents to address the needs of the city.
In early 2021, community leaders from Trellis (Costa Mesa) met with community leaders in Irvine to help start Love Irvine. The main catalyst was to organize a City Wide Serve Day. However, the goal in launching Love Irvine was that it becomes a new city movement that focuses on loving the city through year-round volunteer initiatives, initiative that make a difference. Love Irvine was not intended to solely sponsor a once-a-year Serve Day event. We all knew there was so much more. Our desire from the outset was to dream big and imagine what we could do if Civic, churches, businesses, education, and everyone who calls Irvine ‘home’, all worked together to ‘Seek the peace and prosperity of our city’ (Jer. 29:7) so that everyone thrives.
In just one year, Love Irvine organized itself into a 501c3 organization, deepened its relationship with Civic leaders and other non-profits. We have connected with over 30 church leaders and have over 1,000 people who signed up from the community and are ready to volunteer. We participated in various community events (National Night Out, Irvine Global Village), and organized the 2nd annual City Wide Serve Day (September 2022). We are off to a good start towards helping everyone in our city feels connected, feels that they are part of something bigger, and has more opportunities!
Love Irvine is a city-wide movement for everyone who loves our city and wants to be part of seeking its peace and prosperity.
We work with non-profit and for-profit service providers, schools, and government entities (ie. social workers) to vet out needs that people in our community have. We then connect to churches, businesses, and individuals like you and present those needs as simply and straightforwardly as possible.
Our hope is to show you the best ways to love your neighbor.
