United Way looks for more volunteer projects

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -The United Way's "Day of Caring" is over a month away, but the non-profit still needs projects for the volunteers to do.

Volunteers will gather together and help non-profits complete projects in April, like fixing a worn out fence or painting a building.

Tiffany Hatfield, the marketing and resource development director for Lawton's United Way, says the organization has a few projects lined up for the big day, but would like to have a few more to ensure that businesses that might not otherwise get the help they need can get it.

"We want everybody who signs up to be able to participate. So, it's really important that we have enough projects so that all of our volunteers get the opportunity to go out and give back to the community," Hatfield said.

All 501 (c)(3) businesses, including Lawton Public Schools, can submit a project. All you have to do is go to the United Way's website to sign up. That deadline is Monday, March 21.
