United Way Host Day of Caring

September 11 is Day of Caring in Cullman.

United Way of Cullman County, in collaboration with its community partners, will host a Day of Caring September 11, 2018. The event will provide community members with a meaningful and collective volunteer opportunity.

 

“Day of Caring gives our community the opportunity to unite and give back,” said Steve Moore, United Way of Cullman County Board Chair.  “During Day of Caring, volunteers are able to accomplish projects for our community partners that allow them to focus on their mission.”

 

This year we have 12 businesses that are donating time, volunteers and resources to assist with hands-on projects such as cleaning, landscaping and providing lunch for program participants.

 

Day of Caring promotes the value of volunteerism and demonstrates that neighbors helping neighbors can create a positive change in the lives of children, families and seniors. Local businesses and organizations will take part by coordinating teams of employees to spend a day giving back to area non-profit agencies.

This year’s event will take place on National Day of Service.  Launched in 2002, the National Day of Service asks people to do at least one good deed on 9/11, in honor of those who died that day. Numerous community service organizations and charities offer opportunities for people to give back, paying tribute to the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001.

Day of Caring will kick off with a breakfast Sept. 11, 7:30 am, at the Train Depot. Thank you to our sponsors, Rehau, LP Corporation, Milos, Merchant’s Bank, Topre, The UPS Store and Publix.
