Call for Volunteer Projects for Day of Caring

Dear Community Partners,

Hands On Central Texas, a program of United Way Capital Area, invites you to submit a volunteer project for the United Way Fall Day of Caring, presented by Freescale Semiconductor.

United Way Day of Caring is a community-wide event that addresses critical social issues through meaningful volunteer action. Each year, more than 1,500 corporate & community volunteers lend a hand in tackling issues such as poverty, education and health — doing everything from building homes to delivering meals to beautifying community parks.

On Friday, September 11, 2009, we will host multiple volunteer projects centered around the United Way & Hands On focus areas: Education, Financial Stability, Health & Environment. If your organization could benefit from the inspired actions of a group of coordinated volunteers, we encourage you to submit a volunteer project. We’ll work on recruiting the volunteers for your Day of Caring project and help with the logistics. And when the Fall Day of Caring arrives, you’ll be amazed at what these volunteers accomplish in just a few hours!

This year, as we come together as a community for this important day of service, we’ll also kick off the annual UWCA campaign. So join us as we start the day with the United Way Day of Caring Kickoff, where volunteers will hear guest speakers and learn about the impact they’re making in the community, enjoy breakfast, meet other volunteers, and check-in for their projects.
