NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — The state will celebrate its first-ever Day of Service on Saturday, Tennessee first lady Maria Lee announced.

On May 16, Tennesseans are encouraged to find a need in their community, through efforts like volunteering with a local nonprofit, service others through random acts of kindness or joining a virtual volunteer campaign.

"Now more than ever, it is crucial that we remember to care for and serve one another," said Lee. "Tennessee’s Day of Service is about Tennesseans uplifting each other and entire communities through selfless acts of service. It is my hope that this day will encourage the hearts of those in need across the state."

The statewide Day of Service will include COVID-19 relief efforts, disaster relief and virtual volunteer campaigns. Click here for ways to get involved.
