Our 16th Annual HOTC Day will be Saturday, October 19, 2019 from 9am to noon. Individuals, families, organizations, clubs, churches, schools and businesses are invited to participate in this volunteer-a-thon at various project sites throughout Thomas County. All registered volunteers receive a free tshirt, lunch, pedometer (compliments of Live Better), and the satisfaction of doing good things that improve our community. Big thanks to Presenting Sponsor Ashley HomeStore!

Last year\’s HOTC Day saw more than 1400 volunteers at 66 different project sites donating more than 5000 hours of time to non-profits in need. Help us make this HOTC Day even bigger and better for our community. To see pictures from last year\’s HOTC Day, click here; you\’ll also find more pics on Facebook.
