The PATH Volunteer Center in Warrenton will conduct its second annual community-wide day of volunteering Saturday, April 21.

“Let’s Volunteer Day” participants will help nonprofit organizations with hands-on projects in Fauquier, Rappahannock and Culpeper counties.

Lynn Lauritzen, manager of the PATH Volunteer Center, says it’s a great way to give back to the community,

“In talking with our area nonprofits, it’s clear how much they benefit from the volunteers who help them throughout the year,” said Lynn Lauritzen, manager of the PATH Volunteer Center. “Let’s Volunteer Day gives a way for nonprofits to have groups tackle projects that are often a bit different from their day-to-day efforts.

“It’s really fun to see how much our community can accomplish in just one day.”
Let’s Volunteer Day gives individuals or groups of families, friends, churches and student clubs to make a real difference in the community, Ms. Lauritzen said.

These organizations have 39 projects ready for April 21:
