About Day of Action: Day of Action mobilizes community volunteers to work on service projects that will assist Henderson County Public Schools (HCPS) in preparing for a new academic year. On August 19th, hundreds of volunteers will spread out at schools across the county and work on projects like painting, mulching the grounds, repairing playgrounds and equipment, cleaning, planting, and a variety of other jobs that school staff would not otherwise have the time or resources to complete. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring school supplies and non- perishable food items for students in need. We are thrilled to bring back this popular in-person event this year that will engage hundreds of eager volunteers.

Service Project - Donate School Supplies!

In addition to volunteering, community members are asked to donate school supplies for local students. 
Donated items may be brought to the school where you're volunteering, or to Hendersonville Middle School (825 N Whitted St, Hendersonville, NC 28791) on August 19th between 8 am and 10 pm.
