Next Wednesday, September 21, 2011 is the 20th annual United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring. What does that mean?
This amazing day starts of with a breakfast rally with about 500 volunteer attending, and then everyone heads out to their respective project sites. As you can imagine, Jessica Snyder, our Volunteer Center director, has been organizing this events for nearly 6 months. Other staff members have helped her here and there, but next week, all of our attention is fully diverted for a couple of days to this massive undertaking.
This year, to celebrate the 20th anniversary, we have added special school supply drive for the materials that local teachers have told us they need n their classrooms. Certain teams have taken this on as their projects, and you are welcome to stop by the volunteers' breakfast rally at Albemarle Square from 7:30 - 8:30 am on the 21st to drop off your donation of any of the items on this list.
Here is the Charlottesville Newsplex story on it
The school supply drive projects were already assigned when the earthquake struck Louisa. Teachers in Thomas Jefferson Elementary School have been unable to return to their classrooms to retrieve their supplies - many bought with their own money. So we are making an effort to direct all extra supplies from the drive to them.
We are looking forward to a great day!
