NEMM Day of Service

Namaskar Mandali,

"Giving back to community" is a primary mission for NEMM. We always try to help many nonprofit organizations in order to achieve this mission.

We are bringing you something exciting starting this year to include you in this noble cause of ‘giving back to community’. Beginning this year, we will hold a day of service twice a year. In that you can help local nonprofit communities with variety of tasks (e.g. landscaping, farming, painting, food packaging, reading to kids, writing letters to soldiers, teaching STEM to kids, pet care etc.)

Saturday, June 24th 2017, is gearing up to be an exciting day as its NEMM’s first Day of Service! We invite all NEMM members and non-members to volunteer for as few as 1 hour or up to 4 hours during this Day of Service event. This will allow NEMM community to balance personal schedules, workload and volunteer time. We will be awarding NEMM volunteer certificate with hours to NEMM member's kids who will sign up for the service day. Participation is purely optional and there is no fee to participate, so we hope to see a strong turn-out.

Registration is open now through Tuesday, June 20th 2017.  Some opportunities have limited capacity and will be closed out as soon as they are filled. So in order to get your top choice, please sign up today!
