United Way of Lee County plans annual Day of Caring

LEE COUNTY — The United Way Day of Caring celebrates volunteerism throughout Lee County by bringing together teams from local businesses, schools, churches, civic groups, and families to complete projects and make a significant impact on the nonprofit community. 

This event is a remarkable team builder for groups and allows volunteers to see firsthand the great work accomplished by the nonprofits in Lee County.

Held on Saturday, Sept. 23, United Way Day of Caring begins with a kickoff at Dixon High School parking lot, then volunteers will head out to over 10 project sites. Projects will include painting,landscaping, cleaning, planting a garden and general up-keep.

“United Way of Lee County organizes Day of Caring each year. This event is an incredible collaboration between volunteers and community organizations,” said Ashley Richter, United Way of Lee County’s Executive Director. “What’s really special about this event is the volunteers that work so hard to make positive, long-lasting community change. It’s wonderful.”

Day of Caring helps people across Lee County join together to help non-profit organizations that do so much for our neighbors. 

It is a day where the United Way mantra LIVE UNITED is put into action.
