Community-wide volunteer day slated for Saturday, April 29.
On Saturday, April 29, the PATH Volunteer Center will hold Let’s Volunteer Day – its first community-wide day of volunteering to benefit communities in Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper Counties. Let’s Volunteer Day is perfect for individuals or groups of families, friends, churches and student clubs to sign up to make a real difference for your community.
Lynn Lauritzen, PATH Volunteer Center manager, said, “Volunteers play such an important role in helping these nonprofits accomplish their goals. I love helping people find just the right fit for their interest and skills. The Let’s Volunteer Day is a way for us to encourage groups and individuals to come out and tackle a project that might not be part of the day-to-day needs of an organization.”
Sign-up information and project details such as times, location and service requested can be found at www.letsvolunteer.org. On April 29, participants will go straight to their project site to get started.
A wide range of projects are open to volunteers, with assistance requested from:
