DAY OF CARING WITH UNITED WAY
calling all volunteers for a day of caring
United Way's Volunteer Center, a HandsOn Affiliate Center, is working to recruit group of volunteers for six projects for the 23nd Annual Day of Caring on Thursday, Sept. 13. The Day of Caring is an annual event celebrated by United Ways and Volunteer Centers nationwide.
This year's event also ties in with the nationwide "9/11 Day of Remembrance and Service," an event focused on turning tragedy into triumph by honoring the victims of the 9/11 tragedy and their families by voluntarily engaging in charitable service in observance of the anniversary.
On Thursday, September 13, hundreds of volunteers from local businesses and communities will partner with United Way's Volunteer Center to serve our local neighborhoods through work on community-based projects. The Volunteer Center has been recruiting volunteers for 35 different projects to take place in the Tennessee Valley on this day.
The Volunteer Center still needs the community's help to find groups of volunteers for six of these projects, where willing volunteers can create impact in just one day. These projects include:
-------landscaping and planting gardens at the College Hill Courts and the Houston Museum;
--------renovations and construction at Heartland/Spirit Horse Therapeutic Riding Center for children and returning veterans with disabilities in Flintstone, Georgia;
-------reading to children at Sequatchie Valley Head Start in South Pittsburg, Tennessee;
-------painting at the Samaritan Center; and
-------continuing tornado clean-up at the Boy Scout meeting hall in Trenton, Georgia.
