Inauguration Day of Service

Please note: This event has already occurred.
The official ball may be sold out, but the public can still get in on the official Day of Service that kicks off inaugural weekend. Among the major, White House-endorsed volunteer events, the Points of Light project will enlist 10,000 volunteers to pack 100,000 "care kits" with bandages, hand sanitizer and more for deployed military, wounded service members and veterans. Youths and adults ages 12 and older can sign up for 2 1/2-hour shifts packing boxes and pitching in.
