Businesses and volunteers participate in Day of Caring

Volunteers from around Cache Valley met this morning at Willow Park for the third annual United Way’s Day of Caring. The event that goes along with the state’s Day of Caring gives volunteers a chance to do service projects in the community. 

Doug Stephenson, United Way’s Executive Director says this year’s largest projects are cleaning up two areas in the valley.   

“We’re doing a big activity at the Blacksmith Fork River for Nibley City, trying to keep that river from flooding like it did a year ago or so,” Stephenson says. “We’re trying to clean that out. We’re doing a project out at the American West Heritage Center. You remember they had the Man versus Mud last Saturday? Well today we’re cleaning that up.”

Stephenson says this year Stevens-Henager College, Zion’s Bank, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Watkins Printing, along with other organizations volunteered their employees to participate.

Volunteers also did service projects at other non-profit organizations throughout the community.
