About San Marcos Saturdays

Remember the days where neighbors would help one another with home improvement or maintenance projects without another thought? The City of San Marcos has started fostering those types of neighborhood projects by linking willing volunteers with homeowners needing minor exterior improvements through the San Marcos Saturdays program.San Marcos Saturdays is a volunteer program that connects interested volunteers to home improvement projects in the community. The program is held quarterly on four Saturdays each year. Eligible work is limited to landscaping, trash or debris removal for property owners unable to perform the work.

Interested Homeowners

Interested homeowners may register by emailing the program manager. The program manager will then advertise the project to volunteers. To qualify for participation, homeowners must be disabled, low income or a senior citizen. Low-income residents must income certify with the City before participation. Participating homeowners will remain anonymous. Participation is limited to once per home.

Interested Volunteers
