On Saturday, April 28, The MENTOR Network and its partners celebrated the organization’s sixth annual national Volunteer Day, with more than 2,000 volunteers completing 80 service projects across the country. This year’s volunteers included employees in 34 states as well as individuals served, families, friends and foster parents of The Network.

“I would like to thank everyone who helped make our sixth national Volunteer Day a success,” said Bruce Nardella, President and CEO of The MENTOR Network. “The Network was founded by people who believed that strong communities enable people of all abilities to thrive. Year after year, it is inspiring to see so many who share that belief coming together to lend a hand.”

  • Sorting donations at food banks
  • Lending a hand at shelters for those experiencing homelessness
  • Serving meals to people in need
