HRM Employees to participate in annual Day of Caring in support of the United Way

(Tuesday, October 13, 2009) - On Wednesday, October 14, HRM employees will be pitching in to help their north-end Halifax neighbours, St. George’s YouthNet, by painting their offices, doing gardening, winterizing windows and constructing a concrete walkway.

St. George’s YouthNet provides community youth mentoring programs for Halifax’s inner city. The event is for HRM’s annual Day of Caring in support of the United Way of Halifax Region.

Halifax Regional Municipality staff have a long history of involvement with the United Way. During last year’s workplace campaign drive, they raised $118,378.

The Day of Caring is an excellent example of how HRM employees are being good neighbours and contributing to great neighbourhoods through sponsorship and front-line volunteer participation.

The media are invited to visit the St. George’s YouthNet offices on Wednesday, October 14 from 10:30 - 11:30 am to see the volunteers in action. The offices are located at 2221 Maitland St, behind St George's Church.
