Honor a Military Caregiver as a Daily Point of Light
There are close to 5.5 million military caregivers in the United States, hidden heroes serving in a role that receives little recognition and acknowledgement. In advance of 9/11 Day, we invite our partners to nominate outstanding military caregivers for a Daily Point of Light Award.
One Day Can Make a Difference
Tens of thousands of volunteers across the country will unite for Make A Difference Day on October 28 with a common mission: to improve the lives of others through a wide range of community-driven service projects.
