Day of Action Family Volunteer Opportunity

Posted by uwrivolunteer

Get ready to sort, label, and pack. United Way of Rhode Island’s Annual Day of Action is Saturday, June 2. Volunteers will sort, label, and pack books — preparing them for distribution to Rhode Island youth in summer learning programs across the state. Over the past 6 years, we have collected and sorted 164,769 books with the help of our amazing volunteers and our partner, Books Are Wings.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
