Barrington’s Day of Caring is next month

Town accepting applications for volunteer projects

Posted

Barrington will hold its annual Day of Caring on Monday, Oct. 11, from noon to 4 p.m.

The town-wide event brings together the community and offers help to those in need through service projects. The Day of Caring is a collaboration of local houses of worship, community organizations and the Town of Barrington.

Volunteer groups are assigned to projects which have been pre-planned and organized. This year’s Day of Caring is expanding its service to include any resident who needs help with an outdoor project and would benefit from volunteer support. 

Due to pandemic precautions, projects will be limited to outdoor work and smaller groups of volunteers. Examples of Day of Caring projects include repairing a fence, gate, shed, railings, steps, porches, cutting back overgrown bushes or hedges and yard clean-ups.

Material costs will be the responsibility of the resident/applicant. Funding may be available through the Spencer Trust for those eligible. People can contact Debra Page-Trim (DPageTrim@barrington.ri.gov) to learn more about Spencer Trust guidelines.

Applications for projects should be sent to Debra Page-Trim, who will determine volunteer needs. The deadline to submit an application for a project is Sept. 24.
