2000 visionary entrepreneurs, investors and community supporters from the innovation ecosystem are taking the day off to give back to Boston, the city that gives to them. Individuals, small teams and large start ups alike will be donating their time across 50 volunteer sites, giving almost 10,000 hours of volunteer service on the day. Boston Tech's largest service is then capped off by by an epic block party including free food, drink, live music, and support for six amazing new nonprofits.

Check out last year's recap here


Day of Service (9am-3pm): Participants volunteer across 50 different sites.  Each team/ individual volunteers for a project and will be assigned to one project for the day.  Projects are free and volunteer shirts will be given out on site.  Just remember to bring a lunch!

Party (3:30pm-7:30pm): Everyone comes together at the Lawn on D at 420 D Street in the Seaport for the outdoor community party of the year!  Grab free food and drink and then meet the seven showcasing nonprofits.  True to TUGG's open-source philanthropy model, you then vote and our pool of funds is distributed based on community vote.
