Our United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring may not be until September 17, however we are fielding daily emails and phone calls about agency projects and volunteer teams. Although the event is a couple of months away, coordinating the anticipated 2,300 volunteers with the 200+ projects from more than 100 local schools and nonprofit agencies does require lots of advance time.
This year we hope the process will be that much smoother, thanks to our updated CvilleVolunteer.org website and the ability for teams and agencies to register online. The deadline for registering is July 23, and on August 13, the teams can select their preferred projects on a first-come, first serve basis, again by using the website. We hope that will eliminate our need for the monster spreadsheets we have used in the past.
Most importantly, our United Way Day of Caring means that local nonprofit agencies and schools will be introduced to teams of volunteers from local businesses and organizations that want to give back to their community in meaningful ways. We hope that many will be inspired to return to those agencies to volunteer year-round.
