From renovating local schools to refurbishing bicycles and more, HON offers signature events each year designed to celebrate the incredible work volunteers do in our community every day. Our corporate partners receive benefits ranging from public recognition and marketing to opportunities to serve alongside team members during volunteer events.
Mary Catherine Strobel Volunteer Awards (April)
The Strobel Awards, now entering the event's 32nd year, recognize outstanding volunteerism in our community. More than 600 guests join together to celebrate individuals, teams and corporate groups that have served our city in unique, meaningful ways. Learn more about the Strobel Awards.
Hands On Nashville Day (September)
Hands On Nashville Day is the community’s largest day of service to Metro Nashville Public Schools. For this event, HON places 1,500+ community volunteers to refresh school facilities and create healthier, safer environments for children and families. Learn more about Hands On Nashville Day.
ReCYCLE for Kids (May through July)
Through a three-pronged initiative, ReCYCLE for Kids collects, refurbishes and gifts bicycles for economically disadvantaged children. Following a community-wide donation drive, corporate sponsors are invited to refurbish gently-used bikes to “like-new” condition. During the giveaway event, partners lead recipients in safety skills training, helmet fitting and a bike rodeo. Learn more about ReCYCLE for Kids.
