On May 9, the United Way of Wyoming Valley will hold its annual Day of Caring & Awards Event.
Last year, 622 volunteers joined hands to complete 41 community projects in just one day.
This year’s event will kick off with a continental breakfast at 8:30 a.m. at the Genetti Hotel & Conference Center in Wilkes-Barre.
During a short program, Day of Caring efforts will be highlighted and campaign achievements, volunteers and donors will be recognized with a number of awards for their support of the United Way and the 2013-2014 Community Campaign.
At the conclusion of the program, at approximately 9:15 a.m., interested volunteers will report to their pre-registered project.
Individuals and groups are encouraged to visit www.unitedwaywb.org to view a listing of this year’s projects. One can sign up for a project and a complimentary T-shirt online or by contacting John at 570-829-6711, ext. 237 or email@example.com. April 11 is the project registration deadline.
Thanks to the generosity of sponsors, the event is free for all community members.
