JOIN HANDS DAY
Join Hands Day, which is observed across the United States on the first Saturday in May, is about uniting the older generation with the younger generation in a day of volunteering. Instead of pointing out differences in each other, that often times distance one another, this day is intended to bring to everyone’s awareness, the realization of how beneficial aiding each other can be.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Take the opportunity to volunteer. You may just bridge the generation gap! Use #JoinHandsDay to post on social media.
Join Hands Day was founded in 2000 by America’s Fraternal Benefit Societies as a way for adults and youth to work together as volunteers toward a greater purpose for their communities. In the last decade and a half, service organizations across the country have developed projects that have beautified parks, organized food drives, provided care packages for those in need and much more, all while fostering relationships across generations. To find volunteer opportunities visit the Join Hands Day website.
There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day with National Day Calendar!
