Coming Together for Hands On Charlotte Day
Organizations across Charlotte are celebrating those that give their time at no cost as part of National Volunteer Week. Feel good about giving back, and help children learn how working together as a community can make an impact during Hands On Charlotte Day this Saturday, April 12.
From sorting donated clothes to helping landscape at schools, anyone in the community is invited to be a part of the collective effort to show how working together and taking action can create social change within the community.
Registration ends tomorrow, April 10 for projects around town, and include a multitude of activites that children and families can do together, including working at the Wing Haven Children’s Garden (ages 5+), Helping Hands at Bright Blessings (5+), Promising Pages Warehouse Workday (10+) and beautification projects at several schools in the area.
