United Way of Snohomish County is organizing its 19th annual Days of Caring — the largest volunteer event in the county — for Sept. 21 and Sept. 22. The deadline to register projects is Aug. 31. Local agencies and nonprofits are encouraged to register their projects at www.uwsc.org/daysofcaring.php. Volunteers have until Sept. 12 to sign up for projects.
Projects are also being listed on Twitter using the hashtag #uwscdoc12.
In 2011, more than 1,200 volunteers participated in 73 projects at 34 agencies across the county. Volunteers helped paint a playground in Mukilteo, cleared land to build homes for low-income families in Monroe, completed household chores for a disabled man in Marysville and harvested fresh produce at community gardens in Everett and Snohomish to help stock local food banks.
Several nonprofits have already posted projects online. These include Northshore Senior Center in Bothell; N.O.A.H Animal Adoption and Spay/Neuter Center and Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood; Page Ahead, Full Life Care, the Everett Food Bank, Friends of the Olde Everett Train Station and Families & Friends of Missing Persons & Violent Crime Victims in Everett; Senior Housing Assistance Group in Lynnwood and Edmonds; Clothes for Kids in Lynnwood; and Zion Lutheran School in Lake Stevens.
