Bebig It’s National Volunteer Week, the perfect excuse to get out there and BE BIG!

Did you know that National Volunteer Week is going on all week long? “What is that?” you ask. National Volunteer Week is a time to celebrate people doing extraordinary things through service. Nvw2011_logo

Service comes in lots of shapes and sizes. It can be as simple as picking up litter on your way home from school, or as BIG as creating a “Rain Garden” that keeps your community clean like Clay and his team did with the community grant they received in the 2010 BE BIG in Your Community Contest.

Clay McMullen BIG or small, what matters is that you are helping to make your community a better place for everyone! HandsOn Network, Scholastic’s partner in the BE BIG Campaign, has action centers all over the country that can help you get involved in your community.
