CommUnity & Kindness Day of Service 2019
For Interested Organizations:
We are looking for service opportunities in which volunteers can participate on this day. If your organization has a project in mind, please let us know! Our contact information can be found at the bottom of the page.
Last year, volunteers pulled weeds at the community garden, did a deep cleaning of the Buckhannon Manor, de-cluttered the Senior Center basement, and more. We had about 100 volunteers last year, and expect even more this year.
We would also like to offer various “drive-by” opportunities at Jawbone, such as coupon clipping, making recycled bird houses, care packages, dog toys, teaching hands-only CPR, etc. If your organization would like to participate but doesn’t necessarily have an opportunity at your office, let me know and we’ll find a project for you to host. These “drive-by” projects would be good for volunteers that are less mobile, killing time during registration and lunch, and providing a cover for any volunteers that finish up early. It would also make a bigger impact!
We’d like for the day’s volunteers to be engaged in an opportunity for 2-3 hours. Tentatively, service opportunities will run from 9 AM – 12 PM. Unlike last year, we will not be doing a second shift in the afternoon. This will allow for a more cohesive, reflective end to the day.
If you have an opportunity in mind for this day, or want to participate but need an idea, please let us know! We’re going to list them on the BVC website as opportunities roll in, so we’ll be a little more organized this year.
We hope to have all opportunities confirmed by August 30th, 2019. This will give us an entire month to get volunteers signed up for each opportunity before the Day of Service on October 5th. Please keep this in mind over the next couple months and let us know if you have any questions, ideas, suggestions, etc.
For Interested Volunteers:
Stay tuned! As we confirm service sites, we will provide the opportunity to sign up to volunteer.

The Buckhannon Volunteer Center is a grant-funded program through Volunteer West Virginia and the Volunteer Generation Fund. The grant funding is a part of the Be Kind, #VolunteerWV initiative, a campaign developed by Volunteer West Virginia to dedicate a year of kindness to West Virginia. The campaign’s goal is simple: to spread kindness and volunteerism across the state.
