Kentucky Colonels Spring Day of Service
Saturday, April 15, 2023
9:00am - 12:00pm

Through your contributions, the Honorable Order granted over $3 million in 2022 to 314 organizations throughout the Commonwealth.  As an organization of individuals who are dedicated to making an impact in their community, we know that giving back means more than just giving monetarily; it also means volunteering.  With this in mind, we invite all Colonels and their families to join us in volunteering with Good Works Program grantees across the state to complete necessary projects.  We welcome you to volunteer with your fellow Colonels at one of the sites below.
