Sept. 10, 2008
Media Contact: Michelle Wade, 203.772.2010, Ext.202
Volunteer Projects still available

Days of Caring is an annual United Way of Greater New Haven week-long event where thousands of volunteers from around the region work on one-time improvement projects. This year’s Days of Caring will take place September 15-21, 2008.
Volunteer projects help regional nonprofits that may not have the time, financial resources or ability to perform the work needed. Projects widely vary and consist of activities like beautifying and renovating facilities, creating games and "hands-on" information stations for kids, organizing donated items, planting and landscaping, and planning or donating to a collection drive for anything from school supplies to diapers.
“We hope to encourage individuals, families, friends, and co-workers to support our community and volunteer for Days of Caring,” said Jack Healy, President and CEO of United Way of Greater New Haven. “Days of Caring is one of the largest volunteer events in the state and we hope to take the week to new heights this year.”
The theme for Days of Caring 2008 will be “Live United.” United Way believes that when we reach out a hand to one we influence the condition of us all. Please lend your muscle, join hands, find your voice and open your hearts to help your community.
This year’s Days of Caring presenting sponsor is Yale-New Haven Hospital. Also supporting this years’ Days of Caring Activities will be Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield and WTNH/MYTV9.
