About Hands On Nashville Day 2015

Now in its 24th year, Hands On Nashville Day (HON Day), presented by The Grainger Foundation, is the community’s largest annual day of service benefiting Metro Nashville Public Schools. Each September, HON mobilizes thousands of volunteers to complete ‘done-in-a-day’ improvement projects to enhance learning environments and create spaces where students can be happy, healthy and ready to learn! 

In 2015, Hands On Nashville introduced three new projects that reflect its day-to-day programming in urban agriculture, energy savings and public education.
