The Pushor Mitchell United Way Day of Caring® is an annual community-wide event where United Way coordinates teams of volunteers from the local area and matches them with projects at local charities. Volunteer teams take on light construction, gardening and maintenance tasks while gaining behind-the-scenes insight into the work of local non-profit agencies. Multiple projects are completed resulting in hundreds of hours invested in just one day.
