Hands On Clarksville Becomes Volunteer Clarksville
December 5, 2012
Hands On Nashville (HON) has been honored to serve as the incubator for the Hands On Clarksville Program, which has connected Clarksville-area volunteers with diverse and critical community needs. Over the last two years, this successful endeavor has engaged over 3,000 volunteers; supported 15+ nonprofits and government agencies; and introduced Serve to Remember, an annual volunteer event that commemorates the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance and salutes hometown heroes deployed from the Fort Campbell U.S. Army installation.
As a result of these achievements, Clarksville-Montgomery County volunteer leaders are launching Volunteer Clarksville – a new, Clarksville-based, volunteer resource center. With this new organization in place, Hands On Nashville’s Hands On Clarksville Program will be discontinued on December 31, 2012.
Still, Hands On Nashville remains committed to Clarksville-Montgomery County. Through 2014, HON will partner with Volunteer Clarksville and The Corporation for National and Community Service to present the annual Serve to Remember program. As part of this collaboration, the Fort Campbell Wounded Warrior Garden and the “Pillars of Art: Remembering our Heroes” tile painting projects will be completed by volunteers to honor the memory of 9/11 victims and heroes.
Volunteer Clarksville belongs to Clarksville-Montgomery County and needs support.
