24th Annual United Way of North Central Ma "Day of Caring"
On September 20th two associates from the ThermoFab team, Donna & Serina volunteered to help with the 24th Annual Day of Caring. A Nationally recognized event with United Way.
The United Way of North Central MA holds their event in September every year. The purpose of this volunteer event is to help a non-profit organization within the community complete a project they may not have the time, money or resources to complete. Day of Caring allows for them to be done in one day by volunteers. These projects range from painting, cleaning, organizing and landscaping to trail clearing and building furniture.
It starts with a kick off breakfast where all 350 volunteers gather early in the morning, receive their commemorative T-shirts and celebrate making a difference in the community.
Donna & Serina signed up to help at the local Girl Scout camp where they actually attended as children. They built and refurbished picnic tables while other volunteers at the camp painted the mess hall.The tables came out great and Donna & Serina had fun working with power tools.
It was a beautiful day for being outdoors! At the end of the day all the volunteers met up at a BBQ sponsored by the United Way and had the chance to win raffle prizes donated by sponsors in the community. Donna won a prize too!
They plan on returning next year to help and hope to have additional co-workers join them for this great cause.
