Alexandria 8th graders are looking for outdoor projects to volunteer for
Homeowners and nonprofits should apply by Friday, April 29.
Discovery Middle School and the United Way are seeking outdoor projects for their annual Day of Caring.
Together, more than 350 students from Discovery Middle School contribute more than 700 hours of community each spring.
Organizers are inviting Douglas County residents to apply for help with outdoor projects such as raking, washing windows, gardening, a landscape project or a small paint job. Nonprofits are also eligible to apply, as is anyone with an outdoor service project that directly benefits the community.
To apply for help, fill out a Project Request Form or visit www.uwdp.org and click on the Day of Caring box in the featured slider at the top of the page. Applications must be submitted by Friday, April 29.
On Friday, May 20, projects that are approved will get a group of eighth grade students from Discovery Middle School along with a leader for at least two hours of work. Each work crew will include about 10 people.
Organizers are looking for projects that are a sure thing and will not be canceled.
