Each August, United Way leads hundreds of volunteers in projects across the community as our Days of Caring. It is an annual celebration of how much can actually get done by a fired-up group of citizens. While COVID changed how the projects got done, it was just an obstacle to overcome and it didn't slow down the good that was unleashed.
This year's highlights included;
- 110+ veterans served at the first drive through Veterans Stand Down
- 62 blood donors at the United Way Blood Drive powered by the American Red Cross
- 17 projects completed for local nonporfit organizations
- 42 yards cleaned up for elderly neighbors
- 1,000+ masks sewn for kindergartners
Overall, more than 430 volunteers took part this year, giving back more than 2,000 hours. If you enjoyed your volunteer activity, we hope you will consider helping us with future projects like Days of Caring. A gift of $50 or more makes a huge impact or consider becoming a United Way Champion by making recurring monthly gift.
