UWSL Day of Caring 2012

Today's the big day! United Way of Salt Lake's 20th Annual Day of Caring. I will be working my butt off all day along with a great team of folks from South Salt Lake City and UWSL.

The day starts off with an awesome breakfast and entertainment at The Gateway. Many of the volunteers for the day come and enjoy breakfast before heading off to their projects. I'll be one of those people heading off into the community!

More than 3,855 volunteers from 100 local companies will volunteer giving 35,000 total hours of service to the community. There will be more than 115 one-day service projects in Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, and Tooele counties. These volunteer efforts help save our communities $615,000.

My focus for the day is in South Salt Lake City. I'll be bouncing from project to project making sure things are going well, taking pictures and helping ensure the volunteers have a positive experience while being engaged in the work our partners are doing in the community.

Day of Caring will also be the day 5,000 backpacks will be filled with school supplies for kids at 20 Neighborhood Centers. It's such an exciting day filled with so many caring individuals coming together to help our community be a great place to live.
