  • connecting organizations with programming that we or our partners fund, and/or 
  • providing technical assistance on how to better utilize community volunteers to meet the organization's needs

Looking for a unique way to recruit new volunteers? Consider participating in a Day of Service! Service projects focus on, but are not limited to, service areas such as: education, mentoring, community beautification, and donation collections. People who become involved as one-day volunteers often become great advocates, regular volunteers, and supporters. Our Project Planning Kit will help you develop a successful volunteer project benefiting those in need in your community while honoring a National Day of Service.
