United Way seeks project suggestions for annual Day of Caring

STEPHENS COUNTY, OK- The United Way of Stephens County will host their annual Day of Caring on May 12th.

As part of the 40 year program, more than 150 volunteers will complete projects at agencies of the United Way and other not-for-profit organizations in the county.

“We look forward to the Day of Caring every year.” Gina Flesher, chairman of the 2017 project, said. “It is one of those rare events where everyone wins. Agencies have extra help and skilled workers to finish projects. Volunteers have the opportunity to help others. And everybody has a good time.”

Applications for project suggestions and participation forms are available at the United Way office, 12 South 8th Street, Suite 9 or by calling the United Way at (580) 255-3648. They must be submitted to the United Way office by April 12.

Past projects have included painting, planting, landscaping, window repairs, plumbing, plastering, stenciling or repairing parking lot lines, window washing, reorganizing files and/or storage areas and pressure washing activities. All ideas will be considered and approved based on the availability and skills of volunteers and the availability of equipment and supplies.

Questions should be directed to Helen Stewart or Ed Darling at the United Way office, (580) 255-3648.
