Day of Caring

What is Day of Caring?

Day of Caring is a special day that gathers local companies/organizations, families and friends together to make a difference in our community.  There are hands-on projects that involve volunteers spending a half or full day assisting the needs of local nonprofit agencies.

United Way’s Day of Caring 2014 was held on Thursday, September 11th.  Projects ranged from painting, landscaping, cleaning, minor construction to office work, as well as delivering meals.

At the end of the day, Barley Creek Brewing Company held a Thank You picnic for all volunteers.  Thank You Trip and Steph!

Thank You All for Living United!
