United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring

Annually, UVA participates in the United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring. This is a community-wide annual volunteering service event for employees to give back to the community. UVA has many groups ranging from 5-10 staff or more in each group. Projects range from human services, painting, landscaping, construction, and arts and crafts. The 2013 Day of Caring is scheduled for Wednesday, September 18th.

The event starts with the development of a team and selection from the many projects available. In years past, t-shirts are provided to those participating and a breakfast kickoff is held on the day of the event with all the teams. No leave time is submitted on your time sheet for missing scheduled work for this event.

Sally Jackson and Gail Hundley will co-lead the DOM team and be your point of contact.

Our collective giving through the Commonwealth of Virginia Campaign (CVC) reinforces our commitment to the health and quality life of those in our community by making meaningful donations that can directly benefit our colleagues and our neighbors.
