Nashville Volunteer Week
In 2022, Hands On Nashville launched its first-ever Nashville Volunteer Week! In an effort to combat dropping volunteerism rates nationwide, HON encouraged every person in Nashville to sign up for a volunteer shift through the end of 2022. The celebration, from Oct. 17-23, resulted in more than 700 volunteer shifts filled, 200 new accounts created, and 6,500 visits to hon.org! We are excited to make this a tradition and expand the even in 2023.
