Work On Wilmington (WOW) 2023 Service Project Application
Work on Wilmington is an annual day of service that brings together hundreds of volunteers to simultaneously complete service projects across our community during this incredible four-hour event. For 2023, Work on Wilmington will coincide with Earth Day (April 22nd), which provides a unique opportunity to maximize our community impact by making this the greenest and most memorable WOW day yet.
As in past years, we are seeking projects that will meet specific needs and provide tangible benefits for our community. Projects will only be accepted from area non-profits, local governmental organizations, and schools in New Hanover County.
Projects must be able to be completed in four hours and create a visible, positive impact. They also must be unlikely to happen without the help of Work on Wilmington volunteers. Projects that require large numbers of volunteers are preferred. For your benefit (and ours) projects that require potentially dangerous work (such as roofing, use of scaffolding, heavy use of sophisticated power tools, and excavation equipment) are not suitable for WOW. However, this shouldn’t limit your creativity. We are eager to tackle larger projects that require ingenuity, creativity and especially those that might allow us to incorporate the Earth Day theme.
