    National Family Volunteer Day

    Statewide

    Friday, November 22 '19. Starting at 8:00 am

    National Family Volunteer Day is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday season with giving and service. It is a great day to enjoy the benefits of family volunteering! Volunteering is a wonderful way for families to spend quality time together and expand their horizons by volunteering with and serving others. Volunteering is filled with “teachable moments,” and also provides a way for children to fulfill school community service requirements and develop leadership skills. Volunteering as a family can help inspire a lifetime of service and to being an active member of the community.

    Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

    Statewide

    Monday, January 20 '20. Starting at 8:00 am

    Legislation signed in 1983 marked the birthday of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. as a federal holiday. In 1994, Congress designated the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Holiday as a national day of service and charged the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that leads service and volunteering, with leading this effort. Each year, on the third Monday in January, the MLK Day of Service is observed as a "day on, not a day off." MLK Day of Service is intended to empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, create solutions to social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King's vision of a "Beloved Community."

    Join Hands Day

    Statewide

    Sunday, May 3 '20. Starting at 8:00 am

    Join Hands Day, which is observed across the United States on the first Saturday in May, is about uniting the older generation with the younger generation in a day of volunteering.  Instead of pointing out differences in each other, that often times distance one another, this day is intended to bring to everyone’s awareness, the realization of how beneficial aiding each other can be.

    HOW TO OBSERVE

    Take the opportunity to volunteer.  You may just bridge the generation gap! Use #JoinHandsDay to post on social media.

    HISTORY

    Join Hands Day was founded in 2000 by America’s Fraternal Benefit Societies as a way for adults and youth to work together as volunteers toward a greater purpose for their communities. In the last decade and a half, service organizations across the country have developed projects that have beautified parks, organized food drives, provided care packages for those in need and much more, all while fostering relationships across generations.
