ACT Now to Save Service

Congratulations Florida!

During Save Service District Day on February 25, hundreds of Floridians participated by visiting 24 of our 25 U.S. House members' district offices and both of our U.S. Senators' district offices.


Now we need your continued help. Our next big Action Step is next Tuesday, March 15th. This will be an all out effort to call every member of Congress to ask them to Save Service. See more details in the section below.

Call Congress on March 15

These are messages you can share with members of Congress! They won't know if we don't tell them!

Did you know that more than 74,000 people of all ages and backgrounds participate in Senior Corps, AmeriCorps, or Learn and Serve programs in Florida?

These participants work in hundreds of Florida schools and with more than 2,300 national and local nonprofits, faith-based organizations and other groups like Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs, Catholic Charities, Communities in Schools and Florida's State Parks.

Florida's national service participants have an even greater impact by recruiting tens of thousands of volunteers to work alongside them every year.

And, over $7 million in Florida is invested from private, foundation, or other nonfederal sources to support these federal funds because Floridians understand that these programs have real value and impact in our state.

Please forward to your friends and colleagues and let our voices be heard!
