Субботник!

You may already know the word for Saturday, суббота. A subbotnik is a daytime weekend volunteer activity which involves anything from cleaning up a park, planting trees to helping children, the elderly, or the ill.

Now that spring is on its reluctant way in, Moscow will have no shortage of volunteer opportunities in the form of subbotniks!
