Hands On Nashville and the Neighborhoods Resource Center invite you to come and be recognized for the great work you do in our community as a volunteer.
Join us for Good Neighbor Day at the fifth annual Nashville Neighborhoods Celebration from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 30 in Elizabeth Park.
- Enjoy local artists performing great music, poetry, and storytelling;
- Taste wonderful food from around the world; and
- Engage in a wide range of fun activities for people of all ages.
The event is free with plenty of free parking. MTA riders will discover easy access using route 42 – St. Cecilia / Cumberland.
Volunteers: Stand up and be recognized!
At 2 p.m., we’ll pause to recognize and thank the festival’s volunteers, and their role as some of the 10,000 volunteers serving our community through Hands On Nashville. Share your story about the work you do to make our community a better place to live. Help inspire others to volunteer and make a difference.
Volunteers are good neighbors
“The Nashville Neighborhoods Celebration is inspired by the qualities of every great neighbor,” said Jim Hawk, executive director at the Neighborhoods Resource Center and organizer of Good Neighbor Day. “Hands On Nashville Volunteers are good neighbors, too!
If you believe being a Good Neighbor is important part of life—and I believe most volunteers do—then you’ll be in the right place!”
Of course, there are plenty of volunteer opportunities if you want to help make Good Neighbor Day a great day.
The Celebration’s volunteer needs are listed below. You might expect some opportunities, such as greeting folks, taking photos, setting up and breaking down. Others might come as a surprise – for example, the Celebration is recruiting more than a dozen kazoo players to provide a soundtrack for the competitions and parades.
