The United Way Day of Caring is a time for volunteers to lend their time, talent and skills in the community. 

In turn, the community gets to experience first-hand the collective power of volunteers making a difference in the lives of neighbors, children and families.  This year DOC is focusing on food security/ the Garden Project.  Volunteers are needed on Friday, September 14, from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Saturday, September 15, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. to help lend a hand at community gardens and clean-up.  The project sites are below by date and you'll note additional opportunities listed in this reminder.
