United Way Day of Caring
A Day of Caring is a volunteer opportunity like no other! On Wednesday, volunteers from local businesses and organizations have the opportunity to prove once again that they care about our community by reporting to work sites at local nonprofit organizations and public schools to tackle meaningful volunteer projects! Projects include everything from painting houses to mentoring children and are available in all five United Way partner counties- Allen, Barren, Logan, Simpson, and Warren.
Join the kick-off party from 8-10 a.m. at Covington Woods Park then take time out of your day to make a difference! The impact is immediate, but the experience will last a lifetime. Call 270-843-3205 for details of service opportunities or visit
