NORWICH – The Chenango United Way wrapped up its annual ‘Day of Caring’ with a larger turnout than anticipated, giving needed hope to volunteers and charitable organizations throughout the community.
The United Way’s ‘Day of Caring’ is the kick-off for the organization’s fundraising campaign, preparing them to offer their services to various charitable organizations in 2012. Last Saturday’s primary focus was committed to raising money, voluntary labor and gathering donations for community members who are in need. According to Executive Director Elizabeth Monaco, this year’s event attracted numerous donations and volunteers who showed their commitment for the cause by contributing their time to the cleanup efforts around the area.
“The ‘Day of Caring’ is about gathering donations and working with volunteers,” said Monaco. “We match volunteers with individual projects.”
