On Wednesday, the United Way of Greater Niagara’s volunteers worked to unite the local community as part of “Day of Caring.”
Organizers stated, “In order to make a tangible impact on our community, over 220 volunteers from local companies came together to complete 28 community service projects for local nonprofits at several locations throughout Niagara County and the Tonawandas, culminating in a volunteer appreciation picnic at United Way’s Sanborn office.
“These projects helped benefit over 19,000 youth and over 34,000 people total in Niagara Falls, Lockport, North Tonawanda, the City of Tonawanda and across rural Niagara County.
“As the event continues to grow each year – after last year’s return – we are so thankful for all those who came out to support this event, our wonderful nonprofit partners who hosted projects, and our generous event and food sponsors and donors: National Grid, General Motors, Sahlen’s and Latina Blvd. Foods, Reid’s Drive-In, Wegmans, Tops Friendly Markets and the NIOGA Library System.
