Every year since 2004, ACCA chapters and members around the country fan out to service or replace heating systems in the homes of the elderly, disabled, or less fortunate. Although the official day falls in October, some chapters and members may opt to volunteer on another day, so ACCA has declared the entire month Heat the Country Month. Guardian Services is a participating installer.
The Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship's mission is to provide programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, to recognize business opportunities and to plan for successful futures.
"I've been involved with NFTE for over a year now and I can say that this program does more than teach students the basics of entrepreneurship, it inspires them to think creatively about business and their own futures. The time I spend in the classroom is very exciting, the students have so much enthusiasm and a willingness to dive in and solve problems."
