Calling all MLK Day 2012 Projects!

Posted on October 25, 2011. Filed under: Good Ideas Stick, Tips for HandsOn Partners, Uncategorized | Tags: |

I know Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2012 (January 16, 2012) seems so far away. However, it will come up fast!

HandsOn is happy to announce we will be engaging at least 500 volunteers from many groups including Willamette and Corban Universities. You all know what that means! We need your projects. Because of school schedules and the holiday break we need to send projects to groups for sign up before Thanksgiving. Please note you do not need to give us the exact details of what a group would be doing. We just need to know a general idea of what you might have them do (ex. landscaping, cleaning, sorting, etc.) and the minimum and maximum number of volunteers you can accommodate. All projects will need to take place on King Day. However,

Again we need to a rough list of projects by Thanksgiving. Please submit your ideas and needs to Melissa.

We will, of course, also highlight all projects posted on HandsOn Connect after the Thanksgiving deadline. However, if you would like to tap into an almost guaranteed group of volunteers, the sooner we know the details, the better.

September 11, 2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington D.C. To pay tribute to those who lost their lives that day, September 11th is now a National Day of Service and Remembrance. We have teamed up with HandsOn Affiliates across the county and MyGoodDeed to inspire millions of Americans to re-engage in civic commitments, build 9/11 into an unprecedented annual catalyst for civic engagement, and to help non profits build capacity to effectively engage volunteers.

That is where you come in! We need your projects. Let’s give the community all kinds of ways to help out this year. Please come prepared to HandsOn Connect training so you can post your needs. We will link all projects close to or on 9/11 so folks have an easy way to choose from all the options.
