Sunday May 9

Today is Join Hands Day! Observed across the United States on the first Saturday in May, this day is about uniting the older generation with the younger generation in a day of volunteering. Instead of highlighting the differences between each other which often create distance between them, this day aims to make everyone aware of the benefits of helping each other. Invite teens to read aloud to residents of assisted living and nursing homes. Create a gardening program for all ages. Develop a skills exchange project where one generation teaches the other.
