Be the Change

through Volunteering

George Floyd Volunteerism Week is an opportunity for us all to promote volunteerism, through service projects to support our communities. For George Floyd’s 49th birthday (October 14th), together we will carry out the deeds that George Floyd would still be doing if he were alive. 

Let’s make George Floyd Volunteerism Week a worldwide movement to impact our communities and to ensure peace and development.
