Millennial Day of Service (#Successful)

On Saturday, June 7, 2014, the first ever Millennial Day of Service took place in Washington DC!

In honor of Millennial Week, Capital Cause, an organization that revolutionizes how young people define philanthropy by training them to give collectively to charitable causes, hosted this event and partnered with over twenty millennial-led organizations to make it a success.

On the actual day of service, over two hundred young philanthropists participated by volunteering at Kelly Miller Middle and Johnson Middle Schools. In efforts to encourage students to learn more and give more, volunteers wrote letters to students about valuing education; created career-themed messages on bulletin boards and murals; donated 200 career prep packs; and hosted eight career workshops for students.

Overall, the efforts of the volunteers reached and inspired over seven hundred students in one day! Check out pics from the event on the Capital Cause Facebook page.
