Wanna Do Good? Meet Our Partner, Hands On Nashville!

Wanna do good?

Here at Wannado we believe that a strong sense of community can be found through serving those around us. We have found a truly outstanding partner organization that puts these words into action…so have you met our partner, Hands On Nashville?

Hands On Nashville was founded in Nashville in 1991 by Hal Cato as a part of the nationwide Hands On Network. Under the leadership of CEO Brian Williams, Hands On Nashville is a part of one of largest volunteer resource centers in the world, providing a wide array of weekly opportunities.

Like to garden? Come to Open Garden Time with The Nashville Food Project and help provide organic produce for meal programs! Got a creative side and are good with kids? Serve at Tuesdays for Tots, helping children ages 3-5 from the Nashville community on art projects! Feel like you don’t have time to serve because you work all day? Come to some of the after hours serving opportunities, like the 6:00PM food bag assembly for people living with HIV/AIDS. There really is something for everyone! To find opportunities, check out the Hands On Nashville feed under “Organizations & Guides” in the Wannado app!

 HONDAYIf you really want to dive in, the perfect opportunity is coming up! Hands On Nashville Day 2013 is Saturday, September 21. You can sign up on your own or with a team (you can even join Team Wannado – we’d love to have you!). We’ll be serving Metro Nashville Public Schools, painting and landscaping and making a difference for local education! After HON Day, volunteers are invited to the CMT One Country Celebration for an awesome get-together with complimentary lunch, entertainment, and door prizes!

So if you wanna do good: Be the change. Volunteer. And don’t forget the truth that the organization was founded on: Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

We’ll see you at HON Day 2013!
