Event Day Information:
Thank you for your interest in The Project! We are proud to continue this tradition of service each year, and invite you to be a part of it.  Media and press are welcome to visit our worksites, meet student volunteers, and community residents.

We will also host pre-event kick-off programs prior to each volunteer shift, as well as our executive briefings (held immediately following the kick-offs) at our event headquarters.

Media packets are available upon request.
