Application deadline for Non-profits to propose Day of Caring projects nears

STEPHENS COUNTY, OK (KSWO)- The deadline to propose work projects for this year’s Stephens County Day of Caring, coordinated by the United Way of Stephens County, is getting close.

“Our lineup of projects is falling into place,” Ed Darling, executive director of the United Way, said. “We’ll take the list of ideas, match them with skills of volunteers who have signed up to help and spend a busy day making repairs, fixing problems and making things better.”
So far, the list includes painting, organizing files, cleaning out attics, plumbing, planting and/or weeding flower beds, cleaning a nature trail, cleaning carpet, washing windows, striping and stenciling parking lot lines and light carpentry work.

Volunteers have donated their time and skills to fix needs and spruce up not-for-profit facilities for four decades. This year’s Day of Caring is Friday, May 12.

All project proposals must be submitted by noon Wednesday, April 12 and all not-for-profit organizations are eligible to participate.  Applications may be obtained through the United Way of Stephens County office at 12 South 8th Street, Suite 9 in Duncan; by calling the United Way office at (580) 255-3648; or by emailing Volunteers can utilize the same points of contact

“Much good will be accomplished on the Day of Caring,” Darling said. “And it’s also a fun way to meet new friends and to learn more about the organizations and the people involved in them.”
