CHARLESTON, W.Va. -Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin today encouraged all West Virginians to organize projects and volunteer at least one day between September 15th and September 29th as part of Day to Serve, the second annual effort to strengthen communities through volunteer service.
“There are people working hard in hometowns across West Virginia—making a difference each and every day. I’m proud to say, no other state rivals our community spirit,” Gov. Tomblin said. “I hope we all take this opportunity to come together to reinforce our strong tradition of neighbor helping neighbor. I believe together we will build stronger hometowns and ensure a brighter future for our state.”
