Call for Projects!

We're excited to share the new PSA  that Charlottesville Newsplex created for the 2009 United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring.  Anchor/News Director Jim Hanchett asks nonprofits and schools to contact the Volunteer Center for help in registering or developing projects.  Thank you, Newsplex!


You may have also heard my new WINA PSA with Jay James playing on the Charlottesville Radio Group stations.  Listen here if you haven't heard it.  The message in both of these PSA's is the same: Day of Caring project registration is now open for nonprofits and schools.  It's not just about painting a wall or planting a bush on Wednesday, September 23, 2009.  Day of Caring is about promoting long-term volunteerism in your agency, building partnerships with local businesses and sharing your agency's mission with our community.

Consider the nonprofits where you work, volunteer or those you advocate for and encourage them to register one or more projects.  With nearly 3,000 volunteers expected to sign up, we're looking for approximately 300 projects of all sizes and types.  Go to the Day of Caring website to register your projects or your volunteer team.  Download the Project Development Toolkit if you need project ideas.  Additionally, United Way staff is eager to help you brainstorm.  Call 434.972.1705 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
