Volunteers at one of last years Day of Caring events.

Last 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 mrushfinn@virginia.edu; Medical Center employees should contact Lindsay Neese of Health System Community Relations at 924-5458 or lyn3z@virginia.edu.

Additional details also are available at the United Way Web site at http://www.dayofcaring.info/.
