2022 Annual Day of Caring
On Wednesday, May 11, over 500 volunteers participated in United Way of Wyoming Valley’s 29th Annual Day of Caring. Volunteers from 52 local businesses engaged in community service projects, serving 33 local nonprofits, charitable and community organizations throughout the Wyoming Valley. Their efforts brought nearly $90,000 of value to our community, according to data from Independent Sector, a national coalition of nonprofit organizations.
Projects included cleaning bedrooms at the Catherine McAuley Center, which provides temporary shelter for women with children in crisis; McGlynn Center, an organization that provides after-school tutoring, recreational and cultural activities in a safe environment at no cost to children who live at Boulevard Townhomes or Mineral Springs Village; The River Common/ Riverfront Commons Committee, and more.
Without the support of our entire United Way family, we would not be able to address critical needs in our community. We don’t do it alone, and we couldn’t do it without you. Thank you!
