Day of Caring 2016

UVAFinance employees showed up in full force to participate in various community projects as a part of the 25th Annual United Way Laurence E. Richardson Day of Caring. Combining efforts with University Human Resources, they tackled landscaping at Monticello and Stony Point Elementary School, worked on an outdoor painting project at Moss-Nuckols Elementary School, and helped conduct a carnival for individuals with disabilities, supported by WorkSource Enterprises.

Over half of the Day of Caring volunteer workforce was made up of UVA employees; UVAFinance was represented by a group of nearly 60 people. Together, all of UVA’s volunteers donated nearly 12,000 hours of service valued at $300,000.  For all the weeds you pulled, the prizes you gave, and the numbers you painted: we salute you, volunteers!
