United Way of the Black Hills seeks volunteers and projects sites
United Way of the Black Hills is preparing for their month of caring in September. What was the Day of Caring now fills a month of service projects completed throughout the Black Hills Area.
United Way of the Black Hills is asking for volunteers for projects as well as projects for the volunteers to take on.
Projects can range from small to large like doing lawn work for the elderly to painting a house.
They can also be completed virtually such as reading books to kids at a daycare or individually completed projects like assembling care bags for the local shelters.
Audrea Amstutz, United Way of the Black Hills representative says, “We get a lot of volunteers that come out to do work throughout the Black Hills so this is just a great opportunity to give back to the community.”
Particularly the organization is looking for projects to be completed in the Northern and South Black Hills areas.
Amstutz adds, “We look at about 1,000 volunteers every year for this Month of Caring/Day of Caring. What is so exciting about it is you get a variety of different folks that are coming out with the same mission and the same goal and that’s caring and showing that you care in your community.”
United Way of the Black Hills volunteers nonprofit organizations and individual homeowners that are elderly, disabled, or a veteran can register a project by contacting Rosellen Reese, Month of Caring Coordinator at (605) 343-5872.
Project sites must provide the materials and tools necessary to complete the project. Project registrations are due August 26, 2021.
