Communityler: Make a Difference, and a Friend

Every year since 2011, communities across the country have come together to celebrate the life of Tyler Lorenzi by performing an act of service within their community. Tyler was one-of-a-kind and left a lasting impression on his friends as well as people he only met in passing. He was generous, goofy, caring and fun. In fact, his personal mission was to not end a day until he could answer: “What did you do today that was FUN?”

In his honor, CommuniTyler volunteers have come together one day a year, for several years, across hundreds of locations. Projects vary but a theme persists: make a difference, and a friend.

CommuniTyler projects have included planting trees, cleaning up parks, painting community centers, sorting goods at food banks, working with rescue animals, performing habitat restoration and more.

Beginning in 2020, the CommuniTyler model shifted to DIY. As Tyler’s friends and family, we gather in our communities to celebrate his life by giving back, and we encourage anyone inspired to do the same.

His generosity made a lasting impact on those whose lives he touched. In his memory, we are reminded every year to be friendly, to be helpful, and to have fun!

What is CommuniTyler?

One day, one mission, many locations

Communtyler's mission is to "make a difference, and a friend." Every year, on one single day, over 25 cities participate in their own unique day of giving back. From Dallas to Boston to Los Angeles to Seattle, our amazing coordinators find a way to uniquely give back to their communities through service projects. The projects vary from beach clean-ups to planting trees to clearing trails, but they all have a similar theme: they make a difference. Meanwhile, our volunteers fulfill the other part of the mission: make a friend. Many new friendships are formed while volunteering side by side.
