Volunteers and projects are needed for the third annual King George Day of Caring. This year's event will be held Sept. 28 and will kick-off with light breakfast and project assignments at the King George YMCA.
Each year, teams of volunteers perform projects for local non-profit organizations in an attempt to save needed dollars for non-profits. Projects in the past have ranged from landscaping and grounds maintenance to carpentry, creation of a dog walking trail at the King George County Animal Shelter, playground construction and Dahlgren Rails to Trails clean up, among others.
Non-profits who could use the assistance of volunteers are encouraged to apply for projects to be completed. Projects can include administrative functions such as filing, shredding or organizing; reading to children in non-profit programs; painting and clean up of facilities or general maintenance and organization. Volunteers can assemble a team from work, church, neighborhood or friends to apply to participate in the event, or individuals can apply to be placed on a team. If your non-profit organization would like to submit a project for consideration or if you'd like to submit a team or application to volunteer to participate in the event, contact Mary Ellen Hutcherson at Rappahannock United Way, mehutchersonrappahannockunitedway.org or (540) 373-0041 X314.
