A Day of Service
is a set time when volunteers are encouraged to participate with nonprofit agencies and service opportunities, events, or activities. Days of Service help to raise awareness, mobilize volunteers, and provide individuals with an opportunity to engage and build new connections, and help nonprofits find support for their programs. They can also coincide with other national holidays or recognized events. On these days, CVNL coordinates with 3-4 organizations to produce volunteer projects throughout Marin and Napa Counties. CVNL invites you to partner with us to celebrate these Days of Service!
A special thanks to all the volunteers and organizations who partnered with us for the Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service! Hundreds of volunteers joined us in Marin and Napa Counties at over 20 projects to honor the life and teachings of Dr. King through service.
