Mobilizing volunteers for community change.

Day of Action events mobilize hundreds of volunteers at over 20 local companies every year.

These are one-day events that connect volunteer teams from local businesses with local nonprofits and schools to meet the needs of the community. Day of Action volunteers serve in teams, usually from a local business or civic group. If you would like to form a volunteer team, please contact Terri Center.
