The Done in a Day Committee completes one-day service projects for a variety of non-profit community agencies. Projects are within our current focus area of women and children's advocacy and are selected through an applications process with a total funding commitment of up to $12,000. Selected projects for 2013-2014 include:

National Association of Women in Construction with their "Block Kids" day.
This is a day for low economic elementary school children who may have never seen a Lego before to build something with them using their own imagination. This introduces the construction industry to the children which some might choose as a career path later in life. The creations will be judged and prizes will be awarded.
