Give a Day RVA
Thank you for your interest! All registration is now closed.
You can still volunteer all of this weekend to support the RVA Street Art Festival. SEE ALL SHIFTS AND SIGN UP.
Our regional day of service #giveadayrva
Join us to make a difference at one of many organized volunteer opportunities across the region.
Choose a project at one of 55 of our nonprofit and community partner sites, with an even wider range of regional participation, including with our many government municipalities. Also participating this year are 250 students from VCU's Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement. See a list of all participating site hosts.
Project tasks will include gardening, painting, building, fixing, creating, cleaning, assembling and more!
Back by popular demand: DIY projects you can do at home ahead of the day and DROP IN projects you can attend if you can't stay the whole time.
Join us after for a regional celebration at the RVA Street Art Festival, happening Sept 22-24, 2017, at the Diamond for activities, vendors, food, drink, and watching the muralists in action.
Find an opportunity that connects to one of the region's priority areas:
The Capital Region Collaborative brings together government, business, and community partners to identify priorities and achieve a shared vision for the Richmond Region. Your work on this day helps make a difference towards these larger regional goals.
There are 8 indicators in total--the ones above have projects that tie into them for Give a Day RVA.
We’re creating a more evergreen t-shirt campaign for service in the region—for this one day and beyond! Participants can purchase a themed t-shirt, long sleeve, or hoodie that will be delivered directly to your preferred mailing address. HandsOn will receive a donation for each t-shirt purchased, and your purchase will directly support Give A Day RVA.
Purchase your shirt by September 5th to ensure delivery prior to Give A Day RVA on September 23rd, and wear your shirt with pride to your volunteer project.
Even if you can't volunteer, you can still support HandsOn and Give A Day RVA by purchasing a shirt. Shirts purchased after September 5th will be commemorative and will be delivered after Give A Day RVA.
