Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin encouraged all West Virginians this week to participate in the Governor's Day to Serve, this Saturday.
Since Tomblin announced the Day to Serve earlier this year, the response has been overwhelming. Over 400 service projects have been set up around the state.
"This Saturday, West Virginia will join our neighbors from Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia to participate in a regional day of service," Tomblin said. "Our non-profit and volunteer organizations have done a tremendous job in organizing service projects around the state. I'm calling on all West Virginians to join in the effort - participate in a service project in your area or simply take some time to help others in your community."
"Our state has a longstanding tradition of community service. West Virginians know that together we can make a difference, and this Saturday, we will," Tomblin said. "Thank you in advance for your dedication to the Mountain State and your fellow West Virginians."
