The Hutchinson County United Way is seeking projects for its Day of Caring this April.
The event is scheduled for April 28, 2012. There will not be a day of caring scheduled this fall.
According to Teri Hogue, who is on the United Way Board of Directors, this particular event is a day when volunteers choose to give their time and services to work on a one-time service project in an effort to impact the communityâ€™s needs with tasks that they are unable to perform themselves.
â€śProjects are dependent upon the manpower available,â€ť she said.
Local citizens or those they know who are elderly or disabled are encouraged to call the HCUW for help with the following projects:
â€˘Winterizing homes for the elderly and disabled
â€˘Carpentry and odd jobs
All jobs will be limited to four hours of work.
Jobs are limited, and the following types of work will not be approved:
â€˘Work requiring permits
â€˘Outside paint jobs
â€˘Work on rental property
Those wanting to submit a project can call (806) 274-9424 before the April 7, 2012 deadline. Citizens are encouraged to call early due to the limited number of job requests.
