|Volunteers at one of last years Day of Caring events.
year, nearly 2,000 volunteers from local businesses and organizations
reported to work sites at local nonprofit
organizations and public schools to tackle volunteer projects.
Volunteers made a difference at 200 project sites in
the Charlottesville,Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa and
Nelson communities. More than 690 of the volunteers were
U.Va. employees who worked at 86 of these sites.
Once again, U.Va. faculty and staff can join area volunteers
for the 2006 Day of Caring to serve the community in
meaningful ways on a wide variety of projects — from clerical
assistance, to working with children or seniors, to painting,
construction and landscaping.
U.Va. volunteers form a team and designate team leaders,
who will be able to choose a project for their team.
To volunteer or for more information, academic division
employees should contact Miriam Rushfinn of U.Va.
Community Relations at 924-3165 or
Medical Center employees should contact
Lindsay Neese of Health System Community Relations at 924-5458
