What will legacy be?
The spring 2020 Ceili Leahy Day of Service has been canceled. Please SAVE THE DATE for the fall 2020 Day of Service, scheduled for October 17th from 8am – 12noon.
Thank you to the 245 volunteers who were committed to serve on April 4th at one of our 8 nonprofits — JM’s Giving Tree, Fairy Godmother Project, Loisann’s Hope House, Downtown Greens, Friends of the Rappahannock, Tree Fredericksburg, Mary Washington Healthcare Grief Support Services at Harbor House, and JM’s Beautification projects. Thank you to our amazing sponsors who stepped up financially to support the spring Day of Service — Rappahannock Development Group, J. Brian’s Tap Room, Blackhawk Homes, Suzy Stone Century 21 Redwood Realty, White Oak Animal Hospital, and Coleman Motor Company. Special shout outs to FASTSIGNS of Fredericksburg and the Fredericksburg Area UPS Stores who made beautiful banners for the Spring Day of Service and to Old Mill, Inc. Printing & Embroidery for their beautifully designed t-shirts. We look forward to putting our volunteers to work for the fall Day of Service, and we want to thank our sponsors and businesses in advance for continuing to support this important event.
Day of Service
Each year we work with James Monroe High School to organize Day of Service events. We recruit and send volunteers to local non-profit organizations that share Ceili’s values and purpose.
Whom we serve
We serve non-profit organizations whose missions are consistent with Ceili’s values and passions, which included human rights and justice, the environment, and global sustainability. We also serve non-profit organizations that provide help to families dealing with pediatric cancer and grief.
Local businesses sponsor the Day of Service events. Sponsorship allows us to purchase supplies for service projects, refreshments for volunteers, and “Ceili Leahy Day of Service” tee shirts for all our volunteers— a visible reminder of Ceili’s passion for volunteerism and our commitment to community service.
So far our sponsors have included Rappahannock Development Group, Coleman Motor Company, Inc., White Oak Animal Hospital, Suzy Stone Century 21 Redwood, J. Brian’s Tap Room, Blackhawk Homes, LLC, and Fredericksburg Ballet Centre.
