The Winchester Police Department is gearing up to take part in the United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley’s annual “Day of Caring” on Wednesday, September 14th. Nearly a dozen members of the Winchester Police Department team will take part in projects to serve the Winchester community.
Day of Caring is organized, annually, to help kickoff the United Way Campaign and to provide community service projects for local nonprofit agencies and community facilities. More than 850 volunteers are expected to participate.
The Winchester Police Department’s Team will assist with two projects:
Henry & William Evans Home for Children
9:30 – 11:30 AM – Clean out/organize storage trailer at the facility on 330 East Leicester Street.
1:00 – 3:00 PM – Clean cages and play with animals at the facility on 111 Featherbed Lane. Staff may transport dogs downtown with “adopt me” vests to encourage pet adoptions.
The Winchester Police Department’s Animal Control unit works closely with the Winchester SPCA to ensure local animals are properly cared for, and provide education outreach to pet owners. We are excited about these projects and look forward to uniting with hundreds of other volunteers to serve the Winchester community, all at the same time!
