United Way of West Central Connecticut which serves the communities of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth and Terryville, will be holding its 26th Annual Day of Caring on Friday, May 19th.
Day of Caring is an annual United Way sponsored event offering hundreds of people the opportunity to volunteer at non-profit agencies in our community.
Day of Caring began in 1992 as a way to help employees of local corporations interact with human service agencies and has grown since then.
While United Way promotes community service volunteer efforts year-round, this day brings hundreds of people together to make a difference in their community.
In 2016 United Way had over 600 generous individuals on board who donated their time and talents. This number included students from local high schools, individuals, and employees from area businesses.
Volunteers helped by completing projects at local non-profit organizations, where they will experience first-hand the variety of services provided by our local charities.
Donna Osuch, President of United Way, said “We look forward to having everyone pitch in to make our communities more beautiful and demonstrating what it means to Live United. Even if you are not a volunteer assigned to one of our Day of Caring projects, if everyone could just take 10-15 minutes to go outside and do a few small things, like pick up litter and sweep the sidewalk, it would make a big difference in how our communities look and feel.”
