Celebrate Volunteerism
The 22nd edition of Hands On Charlotte (HOC) Day will be held on Saturday, April 12th as part of National Volunteer Week April 6-12, 2014, as it celebrates 40 years recognizing our country’s volunteers for their vital contributions by: 

  • Demonstrating to the nation that by working together, we have the fortitude to meet our challenges and accomplish our goals
  • Taking action and encouraging others in their communities to be at the center of social change--discovering and actively demonstrating you have the collective power to make a difference.
Hands On Charlotte Day has been the signature community service event of Hands On Charlotte since our 1991 founding.  Each year as many as 1000 volunteers spend the day serving many diverse projects across the city, ranging from sorting donated clothing and landscaping Charlotte schools to clearing neighborhood debris and repairing nature trails.
