19TH ANNUAL DAY OF CARING
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 2016
8AM - KICKOFF BREAKFAST
For the past 18 years, the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley has kicked off its campaign by gathering together hundreds of volunteers from dozens of businesses.
They take on projects across the Valley.
The dedicated volunteers paint, remodel, clean, and orgainize.
In 2015, United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley welcomed close to 700 volunteers, making this year's Day of Caring one of the largest and most successful.
United Way once again teamed up with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation to tackle blight.
Nearly 450 volunteers cleaned up 75 blighted homes on the SouthSide.
