From Governor Larry Hogan

During my time as governor, I have witnessed incredible acts of kindness and volunteerism from members of our communities who truly care for one another. I am pleased to announce that starting Saturday, September 10, 2016, Marylanders across the state will join their neighbors in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia to participate in Day to Serve, a month-long volunteering and community service initiative.

Day to Serve is an annual program that encourages volunteerism and promotes how our state’s residents serve their communities. Citizens, faith-based organizations, businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations all come together, every year, to give back to their communities.

From September 10 to October 10, I invite all of my fellow Marylanders to get involved in this program. Bring your friends, family, and colleagues to have fun and give back to your community.

Throughout the month, you can participate in various types of projects. From helping senior citizens to donating and organizing clothes for the less fortunate, you can make a difference in your community—and easily find events in your area to join!

If you’re an organization looking to get involved, you can sponsor a Day to Serve event and register it on the Day to Serve website.

Join the conversation on social media by using #MDdaytoserve and following the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives on Facebook and Twitter. For more information on the 2016 Maryland Day to Serve, visit http://goci.maryland.gov/dts/.  

Last year, I’m proud to say 38,000 Marylanders volunteered for a total of 111,000 hours of community service. This year, we’re aiming even higher—we want 50,000 Marylanders to volunteer for at least 150,000 hours. Get involved and help us make this the most successful Day to Serve yet!
