The 18th annual Days of Caring are Oct. 20-21 and the United Way is seeking volunteers to work on community projects those days.
Volunteers of all ages and abilities are invited to choose from hundreds of community projects submitted by parks, schools, nonprofits, day-care centers, community gardens and more, according to a news release from the United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona.
Volunteer registration runs through Monday, Oct. 16. You can sign up individually or as part of a team at www.unitedwaytucson.org/daysofcaring
Last year, the Days of Caring saw more than 3,700 volunteers complete 130 community projects in two days.
A full list of projects that will be worked on are available at the website.
Some of the scheduled projects include meal prep and delivery at the Gospel Rescue Mission; painting at Ocotillo Ridge Elementary School, cleaning up streets and washes, cleaning up Kennedy Park and volunteering at the Alzheimer’s Association 2017 walk.
