2019 DAY OF CARING IN FRONT ROYAL-WARREN COUNTY

Volunteers from 2018 Day of Caring

 

United Way of Front Royal-Warren County has begun planning for its 2019 Day of Caring and is currently accepting applications for client projects. This year’s event will be held on September 13, 2019 from 9 A.M. until jobs are completed.

“We have changed the date for our Day of Caring this year,” stated Steven Schetrom, Executive Director, when asked about the date change for this year. “The date change was necessary, because of my recent hiring. However, we are anticipating a great Day this year, as many volunteer applications have already arrived at our office, and client applications continue to arrive regularly as well.”

Each year, United Way volunteers help selected clients with home repairs, cleaning and other tasks, such as painting, yard cleanup, landscaping, minor plumbing, electrical and carpentry work – pending required expertise. This year we will accept applications from nonprofit agencies and schools in addition to homeowners.

Clients must meet the following qualifications: live in Warren County; income at or below 200% of the poverty guideline; certify that they are the homeowner and that the home is not being prepped for sale. Client applications are available on our website or at our office. Completed applications must be submitted to our office no later than August 1, 2019.

Our volunteers make the difference. We have several teams of truly dedicated volunteers who come out year after year to make a difference in the quality of life for our neighbors.

If you are aware of anyone needing some help to stay comfortable in their home or to volunteer for our 2019 Day of Caring, please contact us at info@frontroyalunitedway.org or 540-635-3636.
