They participated in a boardroom revitalization project at the Elizabeth Fry Society, planted trees with Conservation Sudbury, built a bench for the Sudbury Action Centre for Youth, painted a client group room at Rockhaven, and helped to paint and ready Theatre Cambrian’s performance space for the upcoming production of Fame.
GenNext, a program of United Way Sudbury and Nipissing Districts, is a team of dynamic young people aged 20 to 39 who are committed to promoting volunteerism and improving quality of life in the City of Greater Sudbury.
The Day of Caring brings social service organizations together with community members to work on one-day projects that benefit the entire community. Volunteers have the chance to use their skills and interests by taking part in meaningful work projects at local agencies.
“This year we had over 30 volunteers sign up for our Day of Caring,” said Miranda Rocca-Circelli, GenNext cabinet chair.
“This event has been a huge success. On behalf of the cabinet, I would like to sincerely thank each volunteer for their contributions on Saturday.”
GenNext is organizing another Day of Caring for next spring. Anyone interested in learning more about GenNext can visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/gennextsudbury.
