Join Hands Day

Join Hands Day is a National Day of Service observed across the nation on the first Saturday in May. Join Hands Day is about uniting the older generation with the younger generation in a day of volunteering. Volunteer Starkville collaborates with local Modern Woodmen of America (Barbara Coats) chapters and the Starkville Area Arts Council to engage youth with local elderly living at nursing and assisted living centers through arts and crafts activities.

On Saturday, May 6, 2017, thirty-two volunteers served sixty-four hours at The Carrington Nursing Center, The Claiborne at Adelaide, and Montgomery Gardens engaging the elderly in hands on arts and crafts projects lead by local artists.
