Join the Columbus State team for Community Care Day 2007United Way of Central Ohio's Community Care Day is the area's largest one-day volunteer outreach event, and Columbus State is forming a team to join in the spirit of community volunteerism.
Last year, 4,800 volunteers from more than 200 companies completed a variety of tasks including painting, clean-up, construction and repair work for United Way agencies, schools, churches and neighborhoods.
By volunteering to join the Columbus State team and donating a day or half-day of your vacation time, you will experience first-hand the needs in our community and how one day of work can make a positive impact on many people's lives.
Columbus State will form a team for Community Care Day, don matching t-shirts, and report for duty as assigned on Tuesday, September 18, between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. You can work the morning or afternoon shift or the full day. Staff must use vacation time. If you are interested in joining our team, please email Barbara Smith-Allen at email@example.com by July 30.
