Cecil Announces Countywide Day of Service

Cecil County has announced Cecil Cares 2017 will be held on September 23, 2017. The initiative will offer residents a chance to volunteer their time, energy, and skills with local organizations throughout the County.

According to a press release,

Cecil County Department of Community Services will sponsor Cecil Cares 2017, a countywide day of service, on Saturday, September 23. The day of service will offer Cecil County residents the opportunity to volunteer their time, energy and skills with local organizations (nonprofits, faith based/service organizations, government agencies) on a variety of hands-on service projects around the county.

During last year’s inaugural event approximately 60 volunteers supported hands-on service projects. This year, Cecil Cares projects will take place at Cecil County Animal Services, Deep Roots, Elkton Community Kitchen, Fair Hill Nature Center, Freedom Hills Therapeutic Riding Program, Generation Station, Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna, Maryland Department of Natural Resources (Elk Neck State Park), and Meeting Ground. Additionally, four organizations – CASA of Cecil County, Cecil County Arts Council, Cecil Land Trust, and the Historical Society of Cecil County – will coordinate a joint project.

Interested volunteers may register for a Cecil Cares 2017 project by filling out the Registration Form on the County website at http://www.ccgov.org and sending it to volunteercecil@ccgov.org. Volunteers may also register on the Volunteer Cecil website at http://www.volunteercecil.org, or by contacting the specific organization they wish to assist. Questions about the event may be directed to volunteercecil@ccgov.org or by calling 410-996-8416.

Cecil Cares 2017 and Volunteer Cecil are coordinated by Cecil County Department of Community Services (DCS) and funded by the Volunteer Generation Fund through the Maryland Governor’s Office on Service & Volunteerism (GOSV).
