United Way Days of Caring

Categories: Midd Blogosphere

Below is information about this year’s United Way Days of Caring. As you may recall, Middlebury College is proud to help sponsor this event by providing paid time off (meaning you don’t have to use CTO) if you chose to participate on a day you were normally scheduled to work.  In order to ensure proper operational coverage, please obtain your supervisor’s approval before signing up. 

“We invite you to be part of our 18th Days of Caring Thursday, September 20 and/or Saturday, September 22.  Join us Thursday with a United Way breakfast provided by the Middlebury American Legion then volunteer at a school, library, or nonprofit agency during the day. 

If you can’t join us on Thursday there are plenty of projects that need your attention on Saturday the 22.  It’s a great time to volunteer with your family or friends.

I have enclosed a volunteer opportunity list and registration form (links below).  Feel free to make additional copies.  Volunteers are matched on a first come, first served basis.  Please return the registration forms, by fax or by mail, to United Way by August 31.  Please return a signed liability waiver with your registration.  A volunteer assignment confirmation letter will be sent to you on during the week of September 4. 

Jobs are still coming in, so please feel free to check the updated list on our website www.UnitedWayAddisonCounty.org.  We’ll also update the list weekly to let you know which jobs have been filled.

 One change this year is that we are asking you to sign a liability waiver (link below).  Please complete it and return it with your registration form.  If you have any questions, please call the United Way office at 388-7189. 

Thanks to you and many other volunteers who have volunteered over the years.  I look forward to spending the day with you again this year.”
