United Way of Greater Augusta hosts Week of Caring

united way of greater augustaDuring the National Volunteer Week, over a 100 volunteers in the Greater Augusta region will complete projects with local nonprofit agencies and schools. On a local level, this event is called the Week of Caring (#woc2018) and is an annual event for United Way of Greater Augusta.

Some of the highlights of the week will include a project on the CreativeWorks Farm as well as the Project Grows Farm. Volunteers will also be helping Wilson Memorial High School with an Earth Day Project on Friday, April 20th. McKee Foods will again partner with Renewing Homes in completing critical repairs for a local family so that they can stay in their homes.

Week of Caring will wrap up with a Children’s Book Swap on Saturday, April 21st at the UWGA’s office on 24 Idlewood Blvd at 1pm.

Community members are invited to stop by and bring a children’s book that they will be able to swap out for another book. United Way staff and board of directors will be visiting all sites to thank the volunteers throughout the week.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009.

(We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!)

That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year.

(Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.)

AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue?

From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading.

Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
