United Way’s annual Day of Caring is approaching a little earlier this year! Join the movement in which dozens of volunteers come together to help non-profit agencies in Carlsbad and the South Eddy County community.
On April 26th, volunteers from all walks of life will roll up their sleeves, pick up a paint brush, shovel or hammer as United Way of Carlsbad and South Eddy County, along with its corporate partner Nuclear Waste Partnership, will host the Sixth Annual Day of Caring.
Normally held in October or November, the event is being scheduled earlier this year due to feedback from United Way’s community partners, volunteers and the United Way staff. Day of Caring matches teams of volunteers from businesses, schools, faith communities, and community groups with non-profit agencies in Carlsbad and Eddy County.
“While we are busy working in our offices every day, there are a lot of people in our community who need help. Day of Caring is a way we can help serve others and give to our community and especially our local nonprofits who give back to our community each and every day,” said Linda Dodd, executive director of United Way of Carlsbad & South Eddy County.
“Our volunteers are amazing,” said Day of Caring Co-Chair Donavan Mager with Nuclear Waste Partnership, which is helping manage and sponsor the event. “Over the past five years, volunteers have made a huge impact to the non-profit agencies in our community. I’m confident this year will be no different.”
Volunteer teams are being recruited and United Way will match each team with projects best suited for their expressed interests. Day of Caring promotes the value of volunteerism and demonstrates that neighbors helping neighbors can create positive change in our community! Additional information about the event will be available in late February or you can call the United Way Office at 887-3504 or email@example.com.
