We are having CVC volunteer days in November! Are you interested in volunteering through the chapter with the James River Parks System or Habitat for Humanity? These are great opportunities to network with fellow Central Virginia Chapter members and give back to our community. Some of us will grab lunch after each event, so you’ll have extra time to get to know others in the chapter.
The first opportunity is on Saturday, November 1, from 9:00am until 12:00 noon. We will clean some trails, perform trail maintenance, pick up trash, remove invasive species of plants, and provide overall beautification along the James River with the Parks System.
The second opportunity is on Saturday, November 8, from 9:30am until 12:30pm. We’ll help Habitat for Humanity organize donations received at its Restore. Volunteer tasks rotate depending on need, so you may be able to pick from the areas of the store where you excel: visual merchandising, finding hidden treasures, pricing, using your physical strength, attention to detail, etc.!
If you’d like to volunteer, you can sign up for the James River Parks Clean Up here and select “sign up with a team” and choose Project Management Institute Central Virginia Chapter. You can sign up for the Habitat for Humanity Restore opportunity here and select “sign up with a team” and choose Project Management Institute Central Virginia Chapter.
If you want more information about either or both events, contact Marjie Patterson, Director of Volunteerism, or Linda Hogan. On the volunteer days, just bring drinking water and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and clothing you won’t mind getting dirty. If you’re cleaning the trails, bring some gardening gloves. You are welcome to bring friends or family members, too (kids, 14 and older, are welcome with a parent). We look forward to seeing you and giving back to our community together!
