The United Day Of Caring Helps The Charlottesville Community
Today was the United Day of Caring in Charlottesville VA. I consider myself lucky to be able to participate along with my colleages at Montague Miller and Company to give back to my community.
The Day of Caring was started by the United Way - Thomas Jefferson Area in 1992 "to prommote the spirit and value of volunteerism, increase the awareness of local human service agencies and schools, and demonstrate what people working together for the communities good can accomplish". On this day every year volunteers from area companies and organizations work together to make a difference in the community by completing a variety of much needed projects. These tasks can range from landscaping, painting, clerical duties, human service projects and construction.

I was happy to be able to work on a project that was near to my heart. We worked on cleaning up the 4H Camp at Camp Albemarle. When my children were young their elementary school, the Free Union Country School, held a year end camp out on the last day of school every year. I have fond memories toasting marshmellows around the campfire while watching the children perform skits. We cleaned the cabins and kitchen, weeded and sewed grass, mulched, constructed a rock border, constructed window screens, and (the project I worked on) clearing tree limbs.

Projects just like this took place all over the community today on the United Day of Caring. What a fabulous day for the Charlottesville community.
