Application Process for 2016-2017 Projects

Done-In-A-Day is a series of concentrated projects that provide assistance to non-profit agencies by offering volunteers for community-based events on a short-term basis. Volunteers can provide support at a variety of events including fundraisers, however volunteers may not solicit funds or goods for an agency prior to or during an event. Done-In-A-Day volunteers can help with events such as picnics, food bank distribution, holiday parties, egg hunts, 10K race water distribution, children's shoe collection and delivery, just to name a few areas of assistance.  Volunteer placements are generally scheduled in four-hour shifts over a time span of half-a-day, one-day or two-day periods.
