All around you there are volunteer opportunities, but sometimes that can make it difficult to decide where you should focus your time and energy. United Way makes that easy with Day of Caring, a whole day dedicated to improving the lives of others.
If you live in the Fort Wayne area, IPFW will be doing interior painting at Transitions, a residential program for addicted women with children. On Thursday, August 12, start your day with a kick-off breakfast at the Headwaters West Lincoln Pavilion at 7:30 a.m. then move to Transitions at approximately 9 a.m. to spend your day making a difference in the community.
Day of Caring began in 1993 as a general sprucing up of the YWCA campus by 250 volunteers. Since then, it has evolved into a massive effort that brings community volunteers face-to-face with local nonprofit and community organizations. In 2009, fifty-five teams from about 45 local businesses, agencies and organized labor tackled local service projects throughout the Fort Wayne area. You could make an even greater difference in 2010!
