Volunteers work on ‘Day of Caring’ projects

Website for United Way of Greater New Haven (http://www.uwgnh.org/).

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Volunteers are spreading across Greater New Haven, beginning today, to take part in various volunteer projects.  The 194 volunteers are tackling 13 hands-on community projects, in partnership with 11 different organizations, during United Way’s Days of Caring.

Among this year’s projects, volunteers will improve New Haven Land Trust gardens so they can reach their full potential as community gathering spaces, staff a food drive to help stock the shelves of the Guilford Food Bank with in-demand items, help New Reach in New Haven organize supplies so it can more efficiently provide shelter to homeless women and children, and help New Haven Farms maintain a garden that provides food to people at risk for diabetes and obesity.
Days of Caring projects will take place over nine days spanning three weeks, from September 29 through Oct. 21.
