2012 United Way Day of Caring: Newport scheduled for Friday, April 13th.
The Day of Caring is a county-wide day of community service. Teams of volunteers – local businesses, students, individuals (that’s YOU!) – provide much needed labor to complete projects for local non-profit agencies that might not otherwise get done. In each of the four areas of the county (north, south, east, west) we’ve adopted one community project. The project selected in Newport this year is: Lincoln County Children’s Advocacy Center- outdoor grounds clean up. Interested in forming a team or helping out as an individual? Please contact Katelyn Hordichok at firstname.lastname@example.org .
