For Immediate Release (August 01, 2009) - Celebrating the 14th Annual Day of Caring September 10th, United Way volunteers will help nonprofit agencies stock kitchen pantries, paint, clean, landscape and read to children.
"The Day of Caring is about the community working together to create a brighter future," noted Rich Palmer, executive director of Montachusett Regional YMCA and chair of United Way's Day of Caring. "Thanks to the support of all our sponsors and volunteers, it is amazing the number of important projects we can tackle in one day."
It is expected that over 500 volunteers from area companies and organizations, including students from area schools, will donate the day to assist local health and human service agencies with a host of maintenance projects that normally cannot get done due to financial and personnel constraints.
Anyone who is interested in participating is encouraged to contact United Way of North Central Massachusetts at 978-345-1577 or visit their website. The deadline to sign up as a volunteer is September 4th.
SimplexGrinnell in Westminster is the event underwriter.
