They don’t call us The Volunteer State for nothing, folks. Saturday marks year 20 that Nashvillians have come together to better their city in the name of community appreciation. The day is all about giving back to the city; something that we take pride in and do well.
This year’s Annual Hands on Nashville day is this coming Saturday, September 24th. Volunteers will be working to beautify and spiff up Metro Nashville Public Schools across the county. Typical projects will include painting, landscaping, and more. Over 1,400 volunteers are expected to be participating this year. Both individuals and groups are welcomed and encouraged to join in this day of service and give back to MNPS.
All volunteering will take place from 8 a.m.-noon at various Metro Schools across the county. Click here to register to volunteer in this fun-filled day.
While the event is free to participate in, this is Hands on Nashville’s largest annual service event and fundraiser, so a $25 donation per participant is suggested. All donations and contributions to HON help to support the year-round work they do in more than 400 local nonprofits and schools.
After you’ve done your part for the city, head over to Third & Lindsley for the CMT One Country Celebration taking place from noon-2 p.m. There will be complimentary lunch, live music, door prizes and mingling with all of the great volunteers, all offered by the gracious hosts at Hands on Nashville.
