Volunteers needed for Day of Caring
United Way of Charles County will host its 22nd Annual Day of Caring on Sept. 1. The event has been a September community tradition since 1995 where partner agencies are able to have volunteers come in and take care of some of their needs.
This year, 14 agencies submitted 32 projects requiring more than 240 volunteers. Some of this year’s projects are gardening, landscaping, arts and crafts, indoor and outdoor painting, meal delivery, construction type jobs and an IT/ website project.
The day begins at 7:30 a.m. at the Greater Waldorf Jaycees, with a light breakfast before heading out to a desired location. “Live United” T-shirts will be available to everyone that volunteers. Bring a bagged lunch, snacks and additional water or soda for consumption while at projects.
