12th Annual Generation Dayton Day to focus on food insecurity
Young professionals throughout the Dayton region are invited to fight hunger in the Dayton area at the 12th Annual “Generation Dayton Day.”
This day of service gives young professional volunteers the opportunity to make a difference at area non-profits. This year the group has decided to focus its volunteer efforts to help the thousands of people in the Miami Valley who don’t know from where their next meal is coming. The volunteers will be placed at non-profits that focus on this initiative, including House of Bread, St. Vincent de Paul, Dayton Food Bank, Daybreak, Homefull, Dayton of Caring 365, Ronald McDonald House, and United Rehabilitation Services.
Nearly 150 young professionals are expected to take part in this year’s event. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to donate canned food and make care bags that will be taken to places in the community that need them.
Following an afternoon of service projects, participants will celebrate with an after party, which includes food, drinks, and raffle prizes. Those who are not able to participate in the volunteer activities are welcome to join the after party, which is scheduled to begin at 5:30pm at Old Scratch Pizza.
The event is open to members and non-members of Generation Dayton, a program of the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce. Generation Dayton is a diverse organization of talented young professionals who live and work in the Dayton region. Generation Dayton helps its members meet, network, learn, grow and establish themselves as integral components in the future success of the Dayton region.
The group aims to grow a strong workforce by keeping talent in the Miami Valley. Events like “Generation Dayton Day” create an environment for young professionals to give back to their community and create a sense of home.
