JOIN HANDS DAY is a program of the American Fraternal Alliance, the trade association for fraternal benefit societies.
America’s fraternal benefit societies are a distinctive, charitable force of more than 10 million people with various ethnic, religious and vocational backgrounds. For nearly 150 years, fraternal benefit societies have been helping their members achieve financial security through insurance and retirement products, combined with an ambitious volunteer service program for individuals, communities and the nation.
Fraternal benefit societies provide millions of dollars in educational support each year for students and the schools they attend. They maintain and support humanitarian, social and service agencies and causes. Last year alone, these organizations contributed more than 92 million hours of volunteer time toward community service projects.
