HandsOn Day

Our Largest Day of Service
Saturday, October 17, 2015

1 Day. 1000 Volunteers. People at the Center of Change.

Imagine how much better Richmond could be if we all spent just 4 hours doing something together for the community. Join one thousand other volunteers across the metro region each October at nearly 60 sites to make a difference in Richmond on one of many organized volunteer opportunities.

Community Partners

We will connect your organization to a volunteer team ready to paint, build, sort, sew, stuff, organize, clean, rake -- you name it! We'll recruit the volunteers, provide a Project Captain to help supervise, and assist with project logistics on the day of the event -- all at no cost to you. Many projects will also receive funds (up to $350) to help purchase project supplies to engage volunteers. Requests for Projects are now open and close at midnight on Tuesday, June 30.

Registration for projects will open on Tuesday, September 8, 2015.
