Day of Caring 2017 – Central Vermont

May 24, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

Lend a hand as you follow your passion and use your skills by giving the gift of volunteering to your community! This Fall we have several great projects lined up in downtown Barre.

Join us in making a difference in your community. Bring a friend – volunteering is always more fun with a buddy! And, the first 25 volunteers get lunch burritos thanks to Two Loco Guys in Barre!

Project #1 – Outdoor work at People’s Health and Wellness Clinic

We will be working outdoors at the clinic power washing the front of the building, cleaning up the gardens, sweeping and cleaning the sidewalk and parking areas, pulling weeds and, if time allows, doing some painting and staining.

  • What you’ll need: garden or work gloves, clothing you can get dirty, sun protection, water bottle, and equipment you’d be willing to share with other volunteers including garden tools, clippers, etc. Additional details will be sent prior to the event.

Project #2 – Outdoor work at Downstreet Housing

We will be working outdoors cleaning up the yard, building, and gardens and doing some minor painting projects to get ready for Fall and Winter.

  • What you’ll need: garden or work gloves, clothing you can get dirty, sun protection, water bottle, and equipment you’d be willing to share with other volunteers. Additional details will be sent prior to the event.

Project #3 – Outdoor cleanup and staining at OUR House

We will be working outdoors cleaning up the parking area, bushes and landscaping at the front of the building as well as re-staining the wheelchair ramps and side entrance (the stain used last year was defective and has left some patchy spots).

  • What you’ll need: garden or work gloves, clothing you can get dirty, sun protection, water bottle, and equipment like loppers, clippers or trowels that you’d be willing to share with other volunteers. Additional details will be sent prior to the event.

Project #4 – Indoor Cleaning Capstone Food Shelf 

Captone is seeking 10 people total for two separate projects at the Food Shelf. The first group will clean up the space (instead of Spring Cleaning we’ll be doing Fall cleaning!) scrubbing the walls and floor, cooler and freezers. A second group will work on light patching of the walls and prepping for a coat of paint and even painting, if time allows.

Additional projects may be added as they become available. If you have a suggestion for a project in downtown Barre, questions about existing projects or registration, or need more information, contact Carrie know at cstahler@gmunitedway.org or 613-3689.
