Days of Service (DOS) are national volunteer days that unite individuals, families, service clubs, businesses, schools, and faith-based organizations in volunteerism throughout the year. Join us for one or more of our DOS events.

MLK Jr. Day of Service (January)

OneOC will partner with multiple local nonprofits including Orange County United Way, offering volunteer opportunities that address critical community issues.

Earth Day (April)

Earth Day is celebrated around the world, and OneOC observes it with volunteer projects that focus on preserving and beautifying Orange County’s environments. Take an active role in preserving natural habitats and making Orange County a cleaner and greener place to live in.
