Celebrating the 18th Annual Day of Caring Sept. 19, United Way of North Central Massachusetts volunteers will help nonprofit agencies stock kitchen pantries, paint, clean, landscape and read to children.
"Virtually everyone who volunteers walks away energized," said Abbie MacCullum of Bemis Associates, Inc. and chair of United Way's Day of Caring.
"It is a wonderful way to give back to the community and meet some great folks."
It is expected that over 500 volunteers from area companies and organizations, including students from area schools, will donate the day to assist local health and human service agencies with a host of maintenance projects that normally cannot get done due to financial and personnel constraints.
Anyone who is interested in participating is encouraged to contact United Way of North Central Massachusetts at 978-345-1577, ext. 311 or visit www.uwncm.org to register and sign up for a volunteer project.
