Along with our sister project the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC), we are excited to announce that on Saturday, May 19, 2012 volunteers from around the country will join together to participate in the 8th National Arab-American Service Day.  While the service projects in each city will be unique, this event is a true testimony that Arab Americans are giving back to their cities and to America. The spirit of philanthropy extends beyond solely giving money to donating time in service and volunteerism. Arab Americans will join other Americans in a day of service to strengthen their communities, build bridges with one another, and make an impact in their neighborhoods and cities. As a symbol of unity, participating organizations will partner with agencies outside of their own community in order to serve all Americans.

The Detroit Arab American community will be volunteering at the historical Belle Isle Conservancy, patching up a run-down zoo, cleaning along the shore of the island and destroying invasive plants in the forests.
