United Way of the Plains will be holding its 20th annual Youth Days of Caring from March 18 to 22.

Students can volunteer at one of 43 projects over their spring break, United Way spokesman Delane Butler said in a prepared statement.

The projects, offered at more than 30 local nonprofit organizations, include yard work, spring cleaning, teaching seniors to play Wii games and playing with children.

All participants will receive a United Way Youth Days of Caring T-shirt. Projects are available for middle school and high school students and can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

Depending on the project, there is a minimum age of 12.

Students can register online at www.unitedwayplains.org/youthdaysofcaring. Signup ends on March 11.
