Thank You For Taking Action to Save Service September 15th
Yesterday was another day allotted to call your Representatives in Congress to Save Service in America. We thank all of you who took the time out to make a phone call- everyone of you has made a difference!
"If we get 20 calls in the office, we take notice. Overwhelm us with phone calls. Let your voices be heard!" - Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro.
As we move forward from the 9/11 National Day of Service and Remembrance let us continue the call to action to use service as a solution to our 21st century issues. As we have seen time and time again in tragedy and disaster, people act upon their first instincts to serve and help others.
Now is not the time to cut these cost-effective initiatives like the Corporation for National and Community Service that provide opportunities for people to serve and provide solutions to challenges facing communities across the country.
Like Jennifor Moore advocates, don't just stop with a call - get out in your own community and get involved in a service project today. Continue tweeting on the hashtag #saveservice and partaking in these discussions via social media. Let your actions speak for you as well as a phone call- Search HandsOn Network for volunteer opportunities near you.
