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!
