Fifteen volunteers from TowneBank gave a helping hand to the Girl Scouts as part of Day of Caring sponsored by United Way of South Hampton Roads. Organizations throughout Hampton Roads benefited from this special day held on Friday, September 13. The annual United Way Day of Caring was established to promote volunteerism, as well as to raise awareness about organizations that are making a difference in the community. Each year, hundreds of volunteers from the business sector participate in Day of Caring and give service to non-profit organizations.

TowneBank volunteers spent the day at A Place for Girls, the headquarters and program center for the Girl Scouts of the Colonial Coast. They repaired the Center’s boardwalk, varnished decking and rails, and helped with trail cleanup in the Outback, the 8.5 acre nature area situated behind A Place for Girls. The Outback includes a 400 foot boardwalk that meanders through the tidal wetlands, four picnic pavilions, a health and fitness trail, two boat docks for canoeing and kayaking on Bells Mill Creek, and a 50 foot observation tower. In 2004, the Outback became an official site on the Virginia State Birding Trail and is frequently visited by birding enthusiasts.

The services offered by TowneBank volunteers will help the Girl Scouts provide a safe and fun experience for their members and friends from the public who visit the property, a property described as offering a unique outdoor classroom experience.
