West Virginians are encouraged to give back to their communities during the 2013 West Virginia Day to Serve, a collective effort to strengthen communities through volunteer service scheduled for Sept. 15-29, 2013.
“This year, I’m asking all West Virginians to, once again, offer your time and talents in an effort to double last year’s success,” said West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. “By volunteering in our communities, we each have the opportunity to experience immense personal growth while preserving our state’s longstanding tradition of neighbor helping neighbor. Through our collective efforts, we will provide much needed assistance in our hometowns and ensure a brighter future for West Virginia.”
During the 2012 WV Day to Serve, volunteers planned and participated in more than 400 service projects throughout the Mountain State. Residents of Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia will also participate in Day to Serve activities in their respective states.
