Charlottesville, Va.—A group of Charlottesville social workers were compelled to support Virginia Organizing on the Day of Caring this year by supplying and spreading mulch, weeding, and washing the building’s exterior.
“We felt drawn to volunteer at Virginia Organizing because we admire the important work they do on the macro level for so many of our clients,” said one of the organizers of the event, Nicole Shipp. “Since the majority of our efforts are spent advocating for our clients at the micro level, it feels great to be able to give back in such a hands on way.”
Charlottesville social workers Akai, Andrea, Kristen, Leigh, Megan, and Nicole spent the day making Virginia Organizing and their community a more beautiful place.
“We are so glad to have the support of our community,” said Virginia Organizing Chairperson Sandra A. Cook. “These social workers put a smile on all our faces by helping out. As a social worker myself, I am especially grateful for their work.”
