Volunteers Needed for Day of Caring

As part of National Volunteer Week, The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center will once again host a communitywide day of service, Day of Caring, on Saturday, April 16th. Day of Caring is an annual event that brings together hundreds of volunteers to spend time serving on behalf of dozens of community organizations in Douglas County.

We have over 30 projects available, and volunteers can register for projects now at our website, www.volunteerdouglascounty.org, or by contacting our office. So get together with your family, friends, and coworkers and come out to volunteer for the 2011 Day of Caring! A Kickoff Breakfast will be held at Lawrence High School from 9-9:30am to energize and inspire registered Day of Caring volunteers before the projects begin.

Volunteers may also register for projects by contacting Shannon Reid, AmeriCorps Member at The United Way Roger Hill Volunteer Center at volunteer@rhvc.org or 785-865-5030.

Some examples of projects include:

-Planting trees for habitat restoration at the Baker Wetlands.

-Spring cleaning at various agencies, including Family Promise, Douglas County Citizen Review Board, Stepping Stones, and Birthright of Lawrence.

-Helping with various community gardens at Sunshine Acres Montessori School, Broken Arrow Elementary School, and Community Connections Center.

-Painting and general outdoor cleanup projects for Tenants to Homeowners, Inc., Pinckney Elementary School, and Community Connections Center.

-Tree/brush trimming and power washing/window cleaning for The Villages, Inc.

…and so much more!
