Each year, the office recognizes thousands of Maryland volunteers on behalf of the governor.
|Day to Serve
Day to Serve is an annual, month-long community service initiative in which Maryland joins Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia in encouraging its residents to get out and volunteer. During Day to Serve 2016, more than 450 volunteer events were held in Maryland alone.
Volunteer Maryland builds stronger, healthier communities by developing volunteer programs with nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and schools. Its vision is that all Marylanders will participate in and value service as a way of life to enrich and empower community, society, and self.
