Virginia Day to Serve

Provided by Volunteer Prince William

Amazing things happen when we join together to make an impact on our communities!

Day to Serve is a unique annual initiative that transcends politics and religious differences. It unites people of all faiths, races, cultures, and backgrounds with the shared goal of helping those in need and improving the communities where we live. It is a movement started in Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and D.C. to motivate people to get involved in service events each year.

Last year, when a truckload containing 20,000 pounds of food was donated to Central Virginia’s food bank, FeedMore, First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe was on hand to welcome the delivery. The effort was one of three food donation deliveries totaling 60,000 pounds of food to Virginia’s food banks as part of Day to Serve. Combined with other food donations during this time period, a grand total of 200,000 pounds of food was donated to feed hungry families across the Commonwealth! How will your organization make an impact this year? Don’t miss your chance to be a part of this exciting service event which brings together individuals and organization of all cultures, religions, and backgrounds.
