Days of Service: Specific days during a calendar year where Volunteer Iowa, AmeriCorps, and the Governor's Office encourage citizens to take part in a Day of Service to serve and help their community.
Organizations across Iowa will plan activities that give citizens an opportunity to give back. Activities will depend on the specific project, but could range from collection drives, painting, gardening, serving or packaging meals or tutoring children, to cleaning up parks and more. The Day of Service could have partnerships with local schools, families, faith-based groups, businesses and governments to accomplish the activities or projects. Post your project online to help you reach the largest pool of potential volunteers possible!
