Over 1,425 volunteer shifts tackled 110 projects during the Livingston County United Way’s 13th Annual Day of Caring Aug. 20. Based on IRS guidelines for the State of Michigan, the total investment in volunteer hours in the community exceeds $110,500 for this one-day event!
The Day of Caring invites local companies and residents to come together on one day and volunteer at work sites across the county. This year’s volunteers accomplished a variety of jobs at 65 local homes – everything from yard work to power washing. Twenty-five area nonprofits also got much needed assistance with painting, yard work and weeding at agencies, community gardens and schools. A few bigger projects included two fences and two wheel-chair ramps. Other record-breaking statistics include:
• Over 150 businesses and organizations participated
• Over 500 high school youth accepted the Citizens Insurance Day of Caring Challenge – an increase of 300 students!
