Vol­un­teers needed for Day of Car­ing

Maryland Independent - - News -

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.

To vol­un­teer, re­view the vol­un­teer op­por­tu­ni­ties and down­load the reg­is­tra­tion form at www.unit­ed­way­charles.org/day-car­ing. For more in­for­ma­tion, call United Way of Charles County at 301-609-4844, or email dhad­den@unit­ed­way­charles.org.
