2019 Day of Caring

24th Annual DAY OF CARING

United Way of Daviess County held their 24th annual Day of Caring on Tuesday May 14th. This created a total value, in labor hours, of $82,188.86, which benefited the people in our community greatly! We had a record year with 649 volunteers, 58 businesses, and over 3,463.5 hours served.

The ladies from our Art and Flower Garden Club had the place decorated with this year’s camping theme. Rosi Kelso was the lucky winner of the door prize United Way sponsored. It included camping chairs, thermos, cooler, Walmart gift card, and more!

Senior and Family Services and RSVP volunteers served breakfast and lunch which was provided by Knepp’s Restaurant and Yolanda’s. It was a beautiful day; most work completed was outdoors and finished by the end of the day.

Ben Miller, director for Camp Illiana, provided lunch for all the youth volunteers serving out at the camp. Ben also, generously helped finance the breakfast for the morning of the event and served lunch for everyone at his camp. Thank you, Ben!

Casa Sevilla provided lunch to our volunteer crews in and around Odon. Thank you, Casa Sevilla!
