What an incredible day! While the weather was less than ideal for the 2019 Day of Caring, volunteers brought generous, sunny spirits to bring help to organizations and people across Robeson County. This year's projects included favorites like the Jail-a-thon, Knit-In, and Red Cross' Sound the Alarm, and added new opportunities such as beautification for local non-profits and substance abuse awareness. Activities at event sponsor's location, Lumberton Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac, included a Car Seat Safety Check, Therapy Dog, Wellness on Wheels bus, and NC Works Career representatives.
Impact from this year's Day of Caring will be shared soon and include over 10,000 pounds of food collected, 300 items knitted, over 800 volunteer hours.
