DAY OF CARING  

 

doc 


Over 500 volunteers came together on September 14th for the 19th annual Day of Caring. This nation-wide United Way event encourages communities to LIVE UNITED through the spirit of volunteerism. The volunteers comprised of 22 corporate businesses, school groups and various individuals. Each volunteer was connected with one of 25 community benefit organizations in the Valley to work on a  fun and much-needed project. Some projects included a river cleanup along canoes, planting flowers, beautification projects, a trail clean-up, packing food for the hungry - and so much more!

 

The day kicked off with a free pancake breakfast for all volunteers, at Fresno State's O'Neill Park. Afterwards, volunteers headed off to their various projects to begin their day of giving back. The Clovis Lions Club once again prepared the breakfast, just as they had in years past. The giving spirit and enthusiasm was alive in the early morning air, as volunteers streamed in from all over town. Some came equipped with their own company t-shirts. US Script and Crescent View Charter High School came out in full force, providing over 40-50 volunteers each - which was among the largest groups of volunteers that day! Barry Budke, our longtime Day of Caring volunteer, came back for the 25th year to give back - again! Each volunteer that came out showed up with a positive attitude and smile on their face. Their actions truly proved that together, we can all LIVE UNITED


Thank You to all all our volunteers and community benefit organizations that played a part in making this event a success!! Check out the list below to view the full list of participants and don't forget to check out our Day of Caring Album on facebook to view even more great photos.
