On Sept. 7, a team of staff from Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center participated in volunteer projects at Williamsburg’s Camp Skimino during the Day of Caring hosted by United Way of the Virginia Peninsula. The annual event connects local volunteers to nonprofit organizations for a fun-filled day of giving back to the community.
Camp Skimino, a 98-acre year-round camping destination, was host to volunteers contributing various projects, including electrical work, replacing fascia boards and light fixtures, painting and building new benches and a hard plumb water line for the camp’s pool shower.
Beth Davis, director of patient care services and co-chair for this year’s United Way campaign at Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center, helped organize the efforts at Skimino. Davis was a Girl Scout in Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast’s (GSCCC) Council and attended day camp at Skimino.
Day of Caring was established in 1991 to promote volunteerism, increase awareness of local human service organizations and demonstrate how people working together for the common good can accomplish great things. Sentara Williamsburg Regional Medical Center has been volunteering with GSCCC for about five years.
