Join us for the 11th annual day of volunteer service, completing projects at area schools and non-profits.  On average, 1,500 volunteers roll up their sleeves and dedicate a half-day to tackle 30+ projects across Wilmington.  The event is organized each year by the current Leadership Wilmington class, which is a program of the Wilmington Chamber Foundation.

Volunteer activities during the annual WOW events held since 2006 have included: painting the fence of historic Bellamy Mansion, creating a nature trail behind the YWCA, clearing a lot for the Good Shepherd Center, hanging tiles in a downtown parking deck for the City of Wilmington, clearing overgrowth from an historic cemetery and much more.  Each year local companies provide teams of employees to work together on projects.

Because many hands are collectively working, projects that would take months to accomplish are completed in just 4 hours. Learn more and sign up to volunteer at: www.workonwilmington.org.
