MICRO VOLUNTEER WEEK 2017

Register here to participate in Micro Volunteer Week, April 10-15, 2017

Micro Volunteer Week allows you to volunteer for as little as 30 seconds a day–to assist families living a life of homelessness. Help us raise awareness. You can show others how HMHI combats the scourge of homelessness in the Quad Cities.

As a Micro Volunteer, you do a daily challenge—for just one week. It takes between one to 15 minutes to accomplish. You’ll raise awareness and reach other good folks. And, you do it without ever leaving home!

Register to participate. Then, we’ll email you each day with your daily challenge. You can preview the daily micro volunteer activities here:
