United Way of Front Royal-Warren County has begun planning for its 2018 Day of Caring and is currently accepting applications for client projects. This year’s event will be held on April 6, 2018 from 9 A.M. until jobs are completed.
“We hope to avoid the rain delays like we had last year’ quipped Dawn Grave, Executive Director when asked about the date change for this year. ‘We had a group of phenomenal volunteers that worked with the homeowners to complete the projects in spite of the 20 plus days of rain we had in May”.
Each year United Way volunteers help selected clients with home repairs, cleaning and other tasks, such as painting, yard cleanup, landscaping, minor plumbing, electrical and carpentry work – pending required expertise. This year we will accept applications from nonprofit agencies and schools in addition to homeowners.
Clients must meet the following qualifications: live in Warren County; income at or below 200% of the poverty guideline; certify that they are the homeowner and that the home is not being prepped for sale. Client applications are available on our website or at our office. Completed applications must be submitted to our office no later than March 2, 2018.
Our volunteers make the difference. We have several teams of truly dedicated volunteers who come out year after year to make a difference in the quality of life for our neighbors. Last year’s event had more than 60 volunteers turn out to work on 18 projects in the county.
If you are aware of anyone needing some help to stay comfortable in their home or to volunteer for our 2018 Day of Caring, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 540-635-3636.
