Day of Caring is a one-day, volunteer-driven program initiated by the United Way that connects hundreds of volunteers from local businesses to local nonprofits that need assistance with projects ranging from serving lunch at a soup kitchen to community improvement and beautification projects. This unique event gives volunteers an opportunity to spend their day working on assignments that make a difference in the lives of children, families and seniors.
This year, Day of Caring will be “kicked-off”
“The North Penn United Way is excited to join forces with Impact Thrift Stores for our Annual Day of Caring. This one day event partners volunteers from local business with non-profit agencies who need assistance with projects for their agencies and/or clients. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future”, says Kristen Fisher, NPUW Dir. of Community Engagement and Volunteerism.
Impact Thrift will be the beneficiary of the Day of Caring donated items. The donated merchandise will either be sold at one of Impact Thrift’s four stores (Hatboro, Montgomeryville, Norristown, Feasterville)
“This community partnership between Impact Thrift and the North Penn United Way is the perfect illustration of the community coming together for the greater good. Day of Caring gives so many people the opportunity to serve enthusiastically, and help improve our community, one service project at a time,” said Tamika Miller, Director of Community Outreach for Impact Thrift Stores. “We are pleased to support the United Way and contribute to the well-being of the people in our local communities.”
