El Paso – The University of Texas at El Paso is looking for organizations to participate in Project MOVE, which stands for Miner Opportunity for Volunteer Experiences.
The 2nd annual Project MOVE is scheduled for Feb. 19, 2011.
Local nonprofit organizations that need volunteers for specific short-term projects can register at projectmove.utep.edu. The deadline to register is Jan. 19, 2011.
UTEP says last year’s event drew more than 800 UTEP volunteers who painted, landscaped, cleaned, read to and entertained children, fixed bicycles and visited hospital patients for several hours at 42 sites around El Paso County.
