United Way of Hardin County recently held their 3rd annual “Days of Caring” Friday June 10th.
Days of Caring is a community wide effort that brings together volunteers and local businesses to provide short term projects focused volunteer service with non-profit and public organizations. It gives volunteers an opportunity to assist community organizations in achieving their goals learn more about solutions to community issues and experience the intrinsic rewards of contributing to well-being of our area.
This year we had 9 Service Projects, with some of those having multiple tasks in each project. Those service projects were as follows: Big Brother’s Big Siters of Hardin County, Outreach Center & Boutique, Love Inc., New Hope Ministry Park Shelter, Hardin County Museum, Hardin County Family YMCA, Hardin County Board of D.D., Veterans Memorial Park/Boy Scout Lake, United Community LLC.
We had over 100 Volunteers performing these service projects, from Graphic Packaging, Liberty National Bank, Kenton Dental Care, PASS, Kenton Girls Soccer Team, County Board of D.D., Abundant Life Assembly of God, along with other volunteers.
Michele Daniels executive director is very pleased with the turn out of the day and hopes that service projects from other communities in the county become involved in next year’s Days of Caring.
