Celebrating its 20th Annual Day of Caring Sept. 17, United Way of North Central Massachusetts’ volunteers will help nonprofit agencies stock kitchen pantries, paint, clean, landscape and perform construction work.
“The Day of Caring is a unique day-long event that engages hundreds of people in our community to support non-profit agencies for a day,” said Phil Grzewinski, president of United Way of North Central Massachusetts.
It is expected that over 500 volunteers from area companies and organizations, including 2,000 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.
Tyco SimplexGrinnell in Westminster, and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Leominster are the event premier underwriters.
