Did you know in the City of Holland alone there are 250 vacant houses?
This year, Women’s Service Day celebrates its 10th anniversary with a focus on neighborhood revitalization and an opportunity for volunteers—alongside neighbors—to create “pride of place” in an area of the City of Holland that needs it badly.
If you’re interested in being a part of this challenge, mark your calendars for Thursday, October 6, 2011, to participate in Women’s Service Day this year. We’ll share more information about the project later this summer, but for now, save the date!
Women’s Service Day is an opportunity for you to offer your time, skills, and talent to nonprofit organizations in the Holland/Zeeland area, to increase awareness of issues for area women and children, and to network among women in our community. An annual event, Women’s Service Day is celebrating its 10th anniversary.
In the past, we’ve cleaned and organized, painted and finished, landscaped and weeded, cooked and baked, washed windows, assembled lesson plans and materials, organized and led after-school activities for middle school girls, and made cards for families with loved ones who are terminally ill or living in nursing facilities.
