CHENANGO COUNTY – Although the day is still months away, the Chenango United Way has begun making plans for a second annual Day of Caring event, which serves as the official kick-off to the year’s campaign.
Sept. 27 has been set aside for volunteers to help non-profit organizations complete various work projects.
Campaign Director Victoria Mitchell said last year’s event was a success for all involved, with almost double the number of volunteers participating at 12 different non-profit sites throughout the county. This year, Mitchell is anticipating about 125 volunteers, and hopes to have at least 15 non-profit groups sign up.
“All of the volunteeers enjoyed doing the projects,” she said. “We got a positive response to the idea of giving back to the community.”
