United Way DAY OF CARING – SEPTEMBER 2020
Due to the pandemic, we had to make the difficult decision to not hold our more “traditional” Day of Caring, but there are still ways to help and give to your neighbors-in-need throughout the month of September!
Download the Month of Caring Project Guide for instructions, shopping lists, and required materials for Do-It-Yourself projects and the participating agencies to which completed kits should be delivered. We’d love to share the work you’re doing for the community, so please take pictures and send them to Kelsey Preecs at email@example.com.

DAY OF CARING FOOD DRIVE – SEPTEMBER 11
Now more than ever, too many of our neighbors are facing tough choices between buying food and paying for basic needs. These parents, students, seniors, and working families are struggling with hunger and depend on food assistance to make ends meet. You can help with a cash or food donation.
