27th Annual Day of Caring
The 27th Annual Day of Caring is Wednesday, May 2! Each year, the United Way of Monongalia and Preston Counties partners with local nonprofit organizations to coordinate volunteer projects that will be completed on one ‘Day of Caring’. This year, hundreds of volunteers will come together to tackle over 35 projects throughout Monongalia and Preston Counties.
These volunteers include local individuals, families, organizations, and businesses. Volunteers use a website, VolunteerMPC.org, to sign up for the project of their choice, allowing them to decide what aligns with their interests and abilities. Likewise, they can use the website to create a team and sign-up with friends, groups, family members, and co-workers. The projects help the nonprofit organizations involved and include everything from painting, to gardening, to stuffing envelopes, and more.
On Wednesday, May 2th starting at 11:00 a.m. volunteers will meet at the Monongalia County Ballpark for a Kick-Off Celebration. At that time they will receive a volunteer tee shirt, be provided with free lunch, take a group photograph, and meet other volunteers. Directly following the Kick-Off Celebration, volunteers will disperse to various locations throughout Monongalia and Preston Counties to execute their projects. All projects will be completed by 5:00 p.m.
This event, which is the area’s largest volunteer project, will bring together over 300 individuals to create positive change. It is designed to foster service and volunteerism, and to introduce area residents to local nonprofit organizations that work each day to build a better community for all.
