United Way Day of Caring Sept. 16

For Immediate Release (July 25, 2016) – Celebrating its 21stAnnual Day of Caring Sept. 16, United Way of North Central Massachusetts’ volunteers will help nonprofit agencies stock kitchen pantries, paint, clean, landscape and perform construction work.

“The Day of Caring is a unique day-long event that engages hundreds of people in our community to support non-profit agencies for a day,” said Phil Grzewinski, president of United Way of North Central Massachusetts.

It is expected that over 500 volunteers from area companies and organizations, including 2,000 students from area schools, will donate the day to assist local health and human service agencies with a host of maintenance projects that normally cannot get done due to financial and personnel constraints. 

Anyone who is interested in participating is encouraged to visit to register and sign up for a volunteer project or contact Fran Longton at 978-345-1577, ext. 311.

Tyco SimplexGrinnell in Westminster, Mass. and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Leominster are the event premier underwriters.
