Hands On Greater Richmond is gearing up for their annual HandsOn Day. They are celebrating their 5th year on Saturday, October 20, 2012 from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Imagine how much better Richmond could be if we all spent just 4 hours doing something together for the community. Join a thousand other volunteers across the metro region this October to make a difference in Richmond on one of many organized volunteer opportunities.
Project locations include:
- Children’s Museum of Richmond
- The Virginia Home for Boys and Girls
- Full Circle Grief Center
- Tricycle Gardens
- Richmond City Public Schools
- and more!
Here are some ideas on how you can help:
Carytown Cleanup- Help keep the “mile of style” beautiful, to continue to make it a desirable destination for visitors, residents, business, and the entire community. Pick up trash, pull weeds and care for the trees with the Area 10 Faith Community. This project is for children age 5 and above accompanied by an adult.
Preserving Memories – Help clean up Crater Community Hospice’s community garden. The garden is used as a place of remembrance for deceased family members. Bereavement and memories are an integral part of hospice and this garden provides tranquility and a place to reminisce. Winter holiday gift bags will also be created to distribute. For children age 10 and above accompanied by an adult.
It’s in the Bag at Bryan- Help provide clean and maintained grounds and protect the watershed for the public to enjoy at Bryan Park, which is on the National Register of Historic Places. HandsOn Day will create a big cleanup of the little things that tend to cluster and ruin public enjoyment of these natural treasures. For children 10 and above accompanied by an adult.
Volunteer projects will be available for signup on Wednesday, September 5, 2012. Visit the website to signup and learn more.
