Points of Light Institute mobilizes individuals to enact change in their communities by sponsoring engaging volunteer opportunities across the country. Points of Lights volunteer-action division, HandsOn Network, is partnering with 9/11 Day to organize a nationwide day of charitable service to commemorate the 10th anniversary of 9/11, and the national spirit of unity that followed the attacks. The initiative includes scheduled community projects in a variety of cities, with the goal of completing a total of one million acts of service.
In the Los Angeles area, Points of Light Institute will equip and mobilize volunteers with the tools and funding necessary to complete local service projects organized by OneOC and L.A. Works. L.A. Works volunteers will work with veterans and active service members to transform an airplane hangar at Tomorrows Aeronautical Museum into a welcoming space that will function as a community center, childrens museum, great hall for city events, and home base for a mentoring program. Caring cadets with OneOC will renovate veterans homes and write letters to active-duty service members.
Many of the projects encourage working outdoors, such as efforts to clean up the Santa Ana River bed and beautify Santa Ana schools by planting a learning garden and painting murals. Though OneOC and L.A. Works have a schedule full of events planned, the organizations are still in need of the materials necessary to complete many of the projects, including trash bags, gloves, landscaping supplies, and paint.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help sponsor a day of service that will honor the anniversary of 9/11. If G-Team members raise $500, then Points of Light can purchase tools and supplies for charitable service projects across Los Angeles. Each additional $10 raised will go toward funding more service projects during that weekend. G-Team members who want to volunteer can also sign up for opportunities in their communities.
