On Wednesday, May 13, five RCPS employees joined nearly 300 volunteers on various job sites across Rockingham County and Harrisonburg, participating in United Way’s Day of Caring. Our team visited two non-profits for a full day of giving back to the community. The team began at Plains Area Daycare where picnic tables were sanded and colorfully painted for their outside eating area and then moved to Rise where railings were scraped and the campus landscaped.
RCPS team members, April Soltis (Cub Run Elementary), Jimmy Miller (Spotswood High), Alexandra Johnston (John Wayland Elementary) and Cindy Parks (Central Office) were led by Tammy May, assistant principal at John C Myers Elementary, who is also the RCPS United Way liason.
United Way’s Day of Caring is a standard for community service in Harrisonburg. This year’s event organized 32 teams to support 26 non-profits with 66 projects.
