Our regional day of service   #giveadayrva

On our 10th year, we're doing things a bit differently! 

Join us to make a difference at one of many organized volunteer opportunities across the region. We will again have the option for you to choose a project at one of 50 of our nonprofit and community partner sites, with an even wider range of regional participation, including with our many government municipalities.

Project tasks will include gardening, painting, building, fixing, creating, cleaning, assembling and more!  Back by popular demand: DIY projects you can do at home ahead of the day and DROP IN projects you can attend if you can't stay the whole time.

Join us after for a regional celebration at the RVA Street Art Festival, happening Sept 22-24, 2017, at the Diamond for activities, vendors, food, drink, and watching the muralists in action.


We’re creating a more evergreen t-shirt campaign for service in the region—for this one day and beyond! Participants can purchase a themed t-shirt, long sleeve, or hoodie that will be delivered directly to your preferred mailing address. HandsOn will receive a donation for each t-shirt purchased, and your purchase will directly support Give A Day RVA.

Purchase your shirt by September 5th to ensure delivery prior to Give A Day RVA on September 23rd, and wear your shirt with pride to your volunteer project.

Even if you can't volunteer, you can still support HandsOn and Give A Day RVA by purchasing a shirt. Shirts purchased after September 5th will be commemorative and will be delivered after Give A Day RVA.
