MLA’s Cristen Allen participated in Generation Dayton Day 2017
Generation Dayton Day is when an estimated 150 young professionals took to the streets of Dayton on Friday, May 5th, 2017 to “Get Out, Give Back Dayton!” known as Generation Dayton Day, this event marked its 11th anniversary where volunteers from all over the Dayton area met for lunch before embarking on assigned volunteer missions to nonprofit organizations in the Dayton area. The volunteer sites included up to 20 not-for- profit areas in which the volunteers selected their preferred work site. This is one of Generation Dayton’s largest attended events, giving the young professionals in the area an opportunity to give back.
Cristen volunteered at United Rehabilitation Services. She helped with activities in childcare, and getting classrooms ready for the summer camp program.
