Each year, United Way of the Lakeshore hosts hundreds of volunteers to gather for a day of service to our community as we launch our annual funding campaign. Typically known as Day of Caring, our event is a favorite tradition for the collective spirit of good in our community. This year's project, OPERATION UNITED, wants to pay special tribute to those that have already served and done so much for our community, our Veterans. 

We are looking for opportunities to serve our local veteran families by assisting with minor outdoor home repairs and improvements, landscaping, and yard work. Can you help us? If you are a veteran, or you know a veteran that has these types of projects available, please LET US SEVER YOU.
