Day of Caring event planned as Sept. 11 commemoration

Hopkins employees will roll up their sleeves on Sept. 11 to help refurbish a local women's shelter in a Day of Caring event to commemorate those who lost their lives in last year's terrorist attacks. The volunteer effort will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Project PLASE Inc., located at 1814 Maryland Ave.

Volunteers are needed to clean, paint, organize and redecorate the shelter and to collect donations of soap, shampoo, toothpaste and toothbrushes, new pillows and towels, framed artwork and other items.

The Day of Caring is part of National Civic Participation Week and the annual campaign for United Way of Central Maryland, which helps to fund Project PLASE. For more information, contact Candace Abel at or in person at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, 105 Barton, Homewood.
