Governor Hogan Announces Day to Serve in Maryland

September 3rd, 2019 by WCBC Radio

Governor Larry Hogan today issued a proclamation declaring September 11 through October 10 as Day to Serve month in Maryland. As part of the announcement, Governor Hogan is encouraging all Maryland citizens and state employees to choose a day to participate in or to host a volunteer activity. The Day to Serve initiative includes Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, and West Virginia, each of which tracks statistics including the number of volunteers, hours served, pounds of food, and supplies donated in a friendly competition. In 2018, more than 25,000 Marylanders dedicated more than 70,000 hours for 270 volunteer activities for communities across Maryland.

“The Day to Serve initiative unites Marylanders in their volunteer efforts and recognizes the excellent community service that occurs year-round in our great state,” said Governor Hogan. “Our compassionate citizens make Maryland a leading state for volunteerism with their incredible dedication, and these selfless acts bring great pride to communities and our state.”

The Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives will kick off Day to Serve on September 11 at Quiet Waters Park in Annapolis. Volunteers from the Office of Governor, the Governor’s Coordinating Offices, state agencies, and the local community will work alongside Marylanders to clean up the park, organize a 9/11 remembrance ceremony, and host a 5K run to support Wreaths Across America with Ms. Cathy Powers.
