Thank you to all of our amazing volunteers for your service to our community!
Over 400 volunteers did lots of yard work, built fences, power washed homes, and planted beautiful flowers for 11 military and veteran families at this year's Day of Caring. Volunteers also did landscaping work and sorted books for the USS Silversides library, made Kits for Classrooms, painted tiles for the United Way building, decorated bags for Kids' Food Basket, and assembled DTE Energy Saving kits.
Pictured is James Hiza, a Vietnam era veteran, who pitched in to help volunteers work in his yard. He was especially grateful that we were able to take down a dilapidated outbuilding and plant grass in its place. Click here to see more pictures of 2017 Day of Caring.
