September 27, 2011, Clarksville, TN – Hands on Clarksville Awarded National September 11th Day of Service Grant to continue Serve to Remember Program.
The Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) announced today that Hands On Nashville’s Hands On Clarksville program has been awarded a $25,000 September 11th National Day of Service and Remembrance 10th Anniversary Challenge grant. With these funds, Hands On Clarksville’s 9/11 program, called Serve to Remember, will be supported through 2014.
Hands On Clarksville’s service effort was selected because it connected 890 volunteers with diverse community-enhancing projects between September 1st and 11th, 2011. That’s 48 percent more volunteers than organizers initially anticipated.
Habitat ReStore contributed the volunteer hours by Sabalauski Air Assault School Soldiers from Fort Campbell who prepared the ReStore for painting the following week.
