ACCESS HONORS 50TH ANNIVERSARY WITH LARGE-SCALE COMMUNITY SERVICE EVENT IN RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL ARAB AMERICAN SERVICE DAY

What: This Saturday, ACCESS — the nation’s leading Arab American community nonprofit, celebrating 50 years of service— will host a large-scale community service event, in partnership with the city of Dearborn, at several locations across town. 

Arab American Service Day is an annual national event hosted by the National Network for Arab American Communities (NNAAC) a national institution of ACCESS. On this day, Arab Americans across the U.S. come together in their respective communities to demonstrate the power of giving back through volunteerism.  


This year’s 16th Annual ‘Service Day’ will include 15 Arab American community nonprofits and thousands of volunteers across 10 different states, who plan to participate in local community projects, including mural paintings, the creation of baseball fields and the clean-up of neighborhoods.  


This will mark the first year, since the creation of ‘Arab American Service Day’, that ACCESS will focus its efforts solely on the city of Dearborn, honoring both a landmark anniversary and the city that has been the nonprofit’s home base since its founding.
