The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties has announced that its eighth annual Day of Action (formerly the Day of Caring) will take place on Friday, May 21, 2010.
During the United Way Day of Action, teams of volunteers from employers, schools, churches, and other organizations will perform community service projects for United Way’s 45 partner agencies in Rutherford and Cannon counties. These projects may vary from landscaping to painting a room to delivering meals to those in need.
United Way will pair volunteer teams with a partner agency and its project based upon the number of volunteers on the team, any special skills, and the availability of the team during the day. Participants will receive a 2010 Day of Action T-shirt.
Anyone wishing to register a volunteer team for the 2010 Day of Action may find the Volunteer Registration Form online at www.uwrutherford.org or may call (615) 893-7303. The deadline to register a team is April 23, 2010.
The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties and its 45 partner agencies and programs work to advance the common good by focusing on the essentials for building a strong community: education, income and health.
