CHENANGO COUNTY – According to Chenango United Way Campaign Director Rebecca O’Connor, the Chenango United Way’s 4th Annual Day of Caring event, held Sept. 25, was a “tremendous success.”
Approximately 200 individuals, families and employees of local businesses were on hand for this year’s Day of Caring and O’Connor said she was impressed with the amount of work the various teams were able to accomplish in just one day.
Chenango United Way Board Member and Day of Caring volunteer Anne Drexler said she finds participating in the event to be a privilege.
“It made me so proud to look around last Saturday at the 200-plus volunteers who came out to give back to their community,” stated Drexler. “I saw family groups, corporate teams and caring individuals all there ready to help us out.”
Drexler said she sees the event, not only as a wonderfully symbolic start to the United Way campaign, but also as an outlet which encourages everyone to help make the community a better place.
