The city is inviting citizens, neighborhood groups and non-profit organizations who serve the community to register to have their service honored Sept. 12 as part of Project WE CARE! during the Annual Citywide Neighborhood Conference.
This year’s program, “Shaping Our Communities Together: Project WE CARE! at the Annual Citywide Neighborhood Conference,” will include bus tours of the locations where bond projects will be initiated and other city projects have been implemented. The program will held at 10 a.m. at the Neal Bolton Home and Garden Building at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds.
Project WE CARE! was initiated by Council Member Vivian H. Burke to recognize individuals, neighborhood groups and non-profit organizations that demonstrate leadership, character and community service as volunteers. The Annual Citywide Neighborhood Conference gathers citizens who serve on neighborhood associations in order to provide information and outreach about city programs.
Community volunteers and representatives of neighborhood associations and non-profit organizations can register to attend the event online at CityofWS.org/EventRSVP. Citizens with video or photos of their volunteer efforts will find information for submitting them for use during the program. Registration forms and photos/videos should be submitted no later than noon on Friday, Aug. 21.
