Day of Action: Getting Involved
Long-time Rappahannock United Way Day of Action volunteers like Donna Saunders–a Mary Washington Healthcare employee–truly enjoy giving back to our community. Donna has completed a long list of Day of Action projects over the years and has the t-shirts and stories to prove it.
“We’ve done it all. Mulch, painting, washed vehicles. We’ve had good food. We’ve been given orders. We’ve had some poison ivy outbreaks…What better way to team build than volunteering. It’s very rewarding.”
Melody Newton, another Mary Washington Healthcare employee and Day of Action volunteer thinks it’s important to teach the next generation about getting involved in projects like this and would like to see even more volunteers sign up next year.
“It’s always nice to give back,” Newton said, thankful to work for a company that supports such efforts. “Mary Washington Healthcare is very much about giving back to the community. That makes me feel good.”
Because of Rappahannock United Way’s corporate involvement and ability to mobilize volunteers, critical community programs get the help they need each year during Rappahannock United Way Day of Action.
