|Calling all Volunteer Coordinators!|
|One or our largest and most popular events, Alumni Volunteer Day, is just around the corner! We’re collecting names of people who will host sites in their home towns. Last year we broke our record with 30 sites across the country. Will you help us break that record again this year?|
Hosting a site is easy. Click this LINK for a list of FAQs that describe the event and how to participate.
If you're not interested in coordinating a site but would still like to participate, then please SAVE THE DATE for Saturday, September 13th. If there is not a specific Hiram volunteer site in your town, then we welcome you to commit to helping another service project or charity that day. We'll still send you a t-shirt!
