The 2004 Day of Caring volunteers came out in droves to help various parts of the Charlottesville community for the day. Projects included: spending time with residents of a local nursing home, painting the interior of a youth recreation center, accompaning a group of children from a homeless shelter to pick apples at Carter Mountain Orchard and landscaping a city park.

U.Va. employees can serve the community on the United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring Sept. 21.

That day, faculty and staff work with volunteers from the community on projects designed to help people and organizations in Charlottesville and the surrounding counties. Past projects have included working with
children and senior citizens, landscaping, painting, and construction and repair. Faculty and staff should e-mail their names and the types of projects they are interested in to Dana Rivera at danarivera @virginia.edu. Include phone number, department name and address, t-shirt size and other information useful in matching you to a project. If several employees want to work as a team, please indicate that.

Projects are limited and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. (July 11)
