Sign up by Aug. 31 to work for United Way's Day of Caring

The Thomas Jefferson Area United Way will again kick off its annual Community Charitable Campaign with the Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring on Wednesday, Sept. 20.

On this community service day, U.Va. faculty and staff work with others from the community on a variety of projects designed to help people and organizations in Charlottesville and Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and Nelson counties.

Plans are being made for this year's projects. Past projects have included preparing surplus items at the KCRC for a yard sale, teaching interview skills to people who have been out of the work force for a long time, cleaning out hedgerows at the ARC on Park Street, reading to elementary school children, building tool sheds in Fluvanna County, and restoring a Charlottesville cemetery. Volunteers can work the whole day, a half day, or something in between.

Last year, about 120 University faculty and staff participated. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis and can be done by e-mail to Katherine Jackson at or Teresa Nguyen at ttn9e@virginia. edu. Include your name, department, the type of project you would like to work on, t-shirt size, telephone number, address and any other information which might be helpful in matching you to a project. If several employees want to work together on a team, please indicate that.

The Day of Caring is the beginning of the University's Charitable Campaign, which is part of the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign. Under the CVC, U.Va. employees can contribute to hundreds of not-for-profit organizations, including all the United Way organizations in Virginia as well as hundreds of other social service organizations.
