Impacting and Transforming the Community through Service

Join more than 500 people as they make a difference in communities on the First Coast. Dynamic women will lead the way as volunteers wield weapons of mass construction when they participate in Generation WORKS, Generation W’s third annual citywide day of service presented by Deutsche Bank. Be a part of this opportunity to make a change and impact neighborhoods in Jacksonville. Generation WORKS will be held Feb. 4.

Networking and registration begin at 7 a.m. at Unity Plaza, 220 Riverside Ave. The Generation WORKS kick off begins at eight. Volunteers will then head to one of 18 sites to paint, wire, wash and work their magic to transform our city for the greater good. Molly Curry, first lady of Jacksonville; Michelle Cook, director of Patrol and Enforcement with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office; and George Maxey, executive director of New Town Success Zone, will serve as honorary chairs.

“It will be powerful to see dynamic women leading the way at each of the volunteer work sites around town to improve schools and support various nonprofits. The hours we spend investing in our community will lead to a lasting change and deeper commitment to our neighbors,” said Donna Orender, Generation W’s founder. “I truly believe when the community comes together, magic happens.”

“We identified a partnership with Generation WORKS at the 2014 Generation W Conference. The timing of the partnership worked out well for Deutsche Bank since we were looking for the right opportunity for our employees to give back to the community. We are proud to say this is our third year supporting Generation WORKS and our participation is an energizing way to kick off the year,” said Leslie Slover, Deutsche Bank regional head of Jacksonville and Cary, N.C.
