Volunteer in schools on September 20 for Hands On Nashville Day 2014

by Brian Williams, President & CEO of Hands on Nashville

HON Day

On September 20, hundreds of community members will gather at more than 50 Metro Nashville Public Schools to celebrate Hands On Nashville Day, Nashville’s largest annual day of service to public schools.

With buckets of paint, fresh mulch and a desire to make a difference, volunteers will complete “done-in-a-day” improvement projects, including painting and landscaping, to make the places where our children learn and play a little brighter. Today, I would like to personally invite you to join us.

Through the service of volunteers, healthier and safer environments will be created for children and families, and Metro Schools will be able to save time and money.  Last year, Hands On Nashville Day 2013 volunteers had an estimated economic impact of $203,688, according to Independent Sector research.

We’re thrilled to be hosting our 23rd annual Hands On Nashville Day and inspired that more than 1,500 volunteers are already signed up to beautify schools next week. There are still openings at several MNPS school sites that need to be filled, which you can register for today.

I encourage you to rally your friends, family and co-workers and join us for an inspiring and fun day of volunteerism that has a meaningful impact.

In service,

Brian Williams
