Volunteers are sought for annual Day of Caring

The United Way Community Partnership of Carroll County is seeking volunteers for its annual Day of Caring on Sept. 10.

Businesses are invited to recruit volunteer teams of employees to spend the day working on projects for community health and human services agencies. Projects include painting, cleaning, landscaping, reading to children, and sorting donations of clothing.

The Day of Caring will coincide with the kick-off celebration for the annual United Way campaign. Participants will eat breakfast at 8:30 a.m. at the Carroll County Family YMCA. After the kick-off celebration, volunteer teams will report to their project sites.

Volunteers usually work on projects from 9:15 a.m. to 4 p.m., but people who can work only a few hours are welcome to participate.

Companies can form a team, designate a team coordinator and register with the United Way Partnership of Carroll County.
