Volunteers Spruce Up Area Non-Profit for Blind & Visually Impaired
Coordinated through the United Way Volunteer Center, community volunteers of all ages worked for several hours to beautify the property, including painting benches, planting flowers, mulching beds, and removing weeds to provide a more welcoming environment. Crosspoint Christian Church and Pillar Paradise Custom Lawn & Landscaping provided the materials for the job. The United Way Volunteer Center, the designated Volunteer Center for Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties, creates connections between volunteer opportunities and individuals, families, businesses and groups to help serve their community.
United Way's Day of Caring is a year-round program that connects groups with agencies in need of assistance. Groups have many choices of types of projects needed by agencies, including location in our community, degree of physical labor and time commitment.
