The United Way of Lebanon County engaged nearly 1,000 volunteers for its 23rd annual Day of Caring last month, according to a press release distributed by the organization this week.
Volunteers began their day on Saturday April 27 at Lebanon High School, where “Live United” t-shirts were picked up before teams headed to approximately 80 project sites across the county. Projects included trash cleanup, gardening, tree planting, recycling, delivery of donated personal care items, and more.
According to the release, the United Way reached 100% of its blood drive goal for Day of Caring, donations that will help up to 60 people in need.
Other activities as part of Day of Caring included the 3rd Annual Spring Into Reading Fest at the Lebanon Community Library, where over 550 visitors were treated to a book reading by a Lebanon City police officer, as well as a theatrical juggling performance by Chris Ivey and a musical performance by Mark DeRose.
