It's not just a volunteer day, it's a 700-person movement.
Notre Dame Softball. Crowe Horwath. Girl Scouts. Press Ganey. Granger Community Church. May Oberfell Lorber. Junior League. These are just some of the groups that are bringing their members together to give their time this weekend.
Nationally, it's the largest volunteer day in the nation. Locally, we expect at least 700 volunteers to give back to their community this weekend.
