Friday, September 11, 2015 will mark the fourth year in a row that Marylanders have joined their neighbors in West Virginia, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., to participate in the annual Day to Serve volunteerism and community service initiative.

Day to Serve is a unique month-long community service initiative that transcends political, cultural and religious differences by uniting citizens, faith groups, businesses and grassroots organizations from every corner of the state to come together and improve our neighborhoods and communities.

During the 30-day Day to Serve campaign, you can participate in any of the hundreds of community and volunteer events, such as helping to feed the less fortunate, cleaning up our parks and roadways, participating in professional workforce development projects or improving the health and well-being of fellow Marylanders.

From September 11 until October 10, I am encouraging Marylanders from every corner of the state to come together with family, friends, neighbors and colleagues to serve their communities.  Whether it’s for a couple hours, a half-day, an entire day, a weekend, or 30 different projects in 30 days, I ask you to join us and participate in Day to Serve!

Community organizations, businesses and religious institutions can participate in Day to Serve by sponsoring an event and registering it on the Day to Serve website. The only requirement for your event to be included is that it must take place during the month-long Day to Serve campaign.

How will you serve your Maryland community during Day to Serve? You can connect with us and join the conversation on social media by following Day to Serve on Twitter and using #DaytoServe, and follow Day to Serve on Facebook!

For more information on Day to Serve, and to register your Day to Serve event, visit us at www.daytoserve.org. Thank you for your commitment to giving back to the community!

Maryland issues Day to Serve proclamation

The strong support Day to Serve receives from the state of Maryland continues this year as Governor Hogan signed a proclamation recognizing Day to Serve this year. Thousands of volunteers across the state have joined together in service since Day to Serve started and this year looks to be no exception. From school food drives, to community clean-ups, to fundraisers of all shapes, Maryland puts forth an amazing mount of work each year in service to the region.
