NLdoet – NLgivesbackATL

March 13 - March 14

NLdoet is coming to GA/Atlanta and we hope you will volunteer with us! Find a volunteer opportunity that suits you below and help the environment, local communities, veterans and more.
NLdoet, an initiative of the Oranje Fonds, is the largest volunteering event in the Netherlands, taking place on March 13 & 14th this year. All over the country hundreds of thousands of people, representatives from all parts of the Dutch society, including the Royal Family, set a good example by pitching in and doing social
volunteer work at community centers, petting zoos, nursing homes and the like.

 

This year we also commemorate the end of World War II and celebrate 75 years of freedom! We are very grateful to the many Americans that made great sacrifices to liberate us
and we would like to show appreciation for those who have served and continue to serve.

 

We hope we can count on your help those days!
Alone we can do so little, TOGETHER we can do so much!!
