NEW CASTLE, Pa.– The 2019 United Way of Lawrence County “Day of Caring” community service workday is scheduled for Thursday, September 5th.
The “Day of Caring” is the mobilization to perform community service work and respond to critical social problems in the community.
Volunteers see first-hand the needs in our community and how their volunteer tasks can make a positive impact on those needs. Day of Caring will also give volunteers a look at the services non-profit organizations provide and how their contributions of time and money help people. Day of Caring provides the community with a chance to mobilize for a common cause of helping others in need.
Organizers will stage a breakfast, and a short program will be held at the Cascade Park Pavilion this year before moving to your assigned locations for the day!
Last year, over 200 Day of Caring volunteers (individuals, and teams of employees from numerous local organizations) painted buildings, assisted the disabled, repaired campgrounds and performed other tasks for community health and human service agencies.
Westminster College has proudly participated in the “Day of Caring” for many years, and we are seeking volunteers for this year’s event.
In addition to participating in volunteer activities, individuals can contribute food, toys, children’s books, or clothing through Salvation Army, Crisis Shelter, People in Need, or the City Rescue Mission.
