City of Asheville employees pitch in for Day of Caring


Carrier Park got a new coat of paint on Thursday, Sept. 2, as City of Asheville employees joined other organizations in the United Way Day of Caring. The event, coordinated by the United Way’s volunteer arm Hands On Asheville-Buncombe, encourages and highlights volunteerism in the community.

Throughout the community on Thursday, groups and individuals participated in service-based efforts to improve the areas in which they live, work and play.

Alongside nearly 140 volunteers from partnering organizations, City of Asheville employees took up cans, brushes and rollers to put a new coat of paint on the wall around the bicycle track at Carrier Park. The restroom facilities and concession area also got new paint as well. Other groups mulched walking and jogging trails that surround the park. Volunteer support was provided by the City of Asheville’s Parks Maintenance crews.

“This is an important community event, and we wanted to be part of it,” said the city’s Neighborhood/Volunteer Coordinator Marsha Stickford. “And when we all get together like this, we’re able to do something really substantial. It has an immediate impact.”

Stickford said that the event also gave city employees a chance to get out of their offices and interact with others in the community, and show the City of Asheville’s support for the kind of positive impact volunteerism can have.

“That was amazing,” said Hands On Asheville-Buncombe Director Sarah Wolmuth. “It was so great to see everyone out there. It really made a big difference.”
