Hands On Nashville Day

HON Day, Hands On Nashville’s signature day of service and largest annual fundraiser, supports one of the city’s most important resources: Metro Nashville Public Schools. Since 2012, more than 20,000 volunteers have made an economic impact of more than $1.5 million* for schools in our community. 

Hands On Nashville Day is made possible through partnership with the Office of Mayor Megan Barry, Metro Nashville Department of Public Works and Metro Nashville Public Schools.
