It’s definitely not a typical day at work when you arrive at a United Way Day of Caring®.
The idea is simple. An organization needs a new fence, or a paint job, or some landscaping, or some food hampers. So a local business donates a team of employees to get the job done. But it’s not just about the fence. It’s about a sense of caring through volunteerism and connecting people in the community with different skills, different knowledge, and different backgrounds. It’s about team-building for those employees, who have the chance to learn about the programs and services that the organization offers.
And with 660 volunteers putting in over 3450 volunteer hours in less than three years, a lot of work, learning, and connecting is getting done.
