HUNDREDS JOIN UNITED WAY DAY OF CARING THROUGHOUT WESTERN MASSACHUSETTS THIS FRIDAY
Pioneer Valley, MA (September 20, 2019) — Friday will mark United Way of Pioneer Valley’s 25th annual Day of Caring, as two hundred and fifty volunteers roll up their sleeves and render volunteer service to dozens of local non-profit agencies.
This year twenty-five non-profit agencies are participating in Day of Caring, and over thirty unique projects that will be taking place. The United Way of Pioneer Valley Day of Caring is the largest volunteer day of service in Western Massachusetts, and brings together local businesses and non-profit agencies to accomplish meaningful work in the community.
