The United Way of Rutherford and Cannon Counties is currently seeking volunteers for its annual Days of Action which will be held March 29-31, 2012.The event is set to partner with MTSU’s “Big Event” program and the local churches' Operation In As Much program as an opportunity to engage more volunteers in a collective effort.
During the Days of Action, teams of volunteers from employers, schools, churches, civic organizations, and MTSU will perform community service for United Way’s partner agencies as well as local schools and other non-profit and community organizations. These projects may vary from landscaping to painting a room to delivering meals to those in need. Those wishing to participate may volunteer for one day or all three days.
Organizers are expecting as many as 600 volunteers this year. In 2011, the event consisted of 407 volunteers completing 1,789 hours of service that benefitted 25 organizations and schools.
Volunteers wishing to register a team through United Way should complete the online form at http://www.uwrutherford.org/volunteer.aspx no later than March 1. MTSU students may register to volunteer through the MTSU Student Government Association at (615) 898-2464.
