United Way Wants To Recognize Community Volunteers

AREA — United Way of Central Jersey wants to recognize those volunteers who have given time to help their community. Volunteer stories will be featured on www.UWCJ.org on Dec. 5, which is United Nations International Volunteer Day. A recognition certificate will also be sent to thank volunteers for their effort. Volunteers should send stories and a photo today; for more information, call 1-732-247-1209 or email info@uwcj.org.

By recognizing people who volunteer to help others, United Way of Central Jersey hopes to encourage more people to take action and join the effort to improve conditions where they live and work.

All over the world, the United Nations will be celebrating and thanking volunteers who contribute to their community. United Way joins this effort by launching the Worldwide Day of Action, an annual event to galvanize individuals and organizations around education, financial stability and health issues in communities around the world.

For example, United Way of Central Jersey is calling for volunteers to help address the poor levels of language proficiency in Central Jersey. Only 40 percent of low income third grade students pass the Language Arts Test. Volunteers can help by reading, tutoring and mentoring students. For more information visit www.UWCJ.org.
