On Thursday, September 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., local non-profits will feel the impact of a community united as approximately 900 volunteers will give their time during United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s (UWGLV) 22nd annual “Day of Caring” in partnership with the Volunteer Center of the Lehigh Valley.
Lehigh and Northampton County non-profits will have volunteers painting, cleaning, landscaping, and assisting with office projects. Volunteers will also deliver meals to the homebound, visit with seniors and assist with the important work that supports children, families and older adults in the Valley. Last year over 700 employees from 44 Lehigh Valley companies helped non-profits save over $84,000 in one single day.
Day of Caring’s gold sponsor is PPL Corp, Amazon Fulfillment and Zoellner Arts Center are silver sponsors, UGI and Crayola are bronze sponsors with additional support from Wegmans and Kasey Lynn’s Catering, The Meadows.
