Day of Caring brings together hundreds of volunteers from across the Virginia Peninsula to create a positive impact on nonprofits and human service providers helping our neighbors in need. This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who lives or works in our community to gain a deeper understanding of local needs. Registration is available on www.volunteerpeninsula.org where you can sign up for projects such as completing yardwork for low income residents, reading to children, packing food bags for seniors, and more.
