We still have room for volunteers for our Spring Day of Caring. So if you haven’t already signed-up for a project, now’s your chance!
Hands On Central Texas, a program of United Way Capital Area, invites you to help us celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 27 – May 3, 2008) by participating in United Way Days of Caring, presented by Freescale Semiconductor.
United Way Days of Caring are community-wide events that address critical social issues through meaningful volunteer action. Each year, more than 1,500 corporate & community volunteers lend a hand and tackle issues such as poverty, education, and health, while doing everything from building homes, to building community gardens, to beautifying local parks.
On Friday, April 25, 2008, we will host various meaningful volunteer projects that will address Central Texas’ most pressing issues. We will start the day with United Way Days of Caring Kickoff at Alamo Park located at 2100 Alamo Street where volunteers will learn about the impact they are making in the community, and they will have an opportunity to eat some breakfast, meet other volunteers and guest speakers, and check-in for their projects. Volunteer check–in from 8:30 to 9:45 a.m. The majority of the projects run from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
Every day in Austin, we’re working to ensure each child has access to high-quality education, every family has the tools they need to be financially stable, and health and human services are readily available for all.
