United Way to host Day of Caring Nov. 3
For the Rapids City Times
WISCONSIN RAPIDS – The United Way of South Wood & Adams Counties’ annual raking event – Day of Caring – is scheduled for Nov. 3.
The day begins at 8 a.m. at the Grand Rapids Lion’s Club where volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and a hot breakfast. All youth volunteers ages 17 and under must have a signed waiver from a parent or guardian.
The United Way is also accepting registration from local elderly and disabled individuals who wish to have their yards raked by volunteers during Day of Caring.
To register to have your yard raked, call 715-421-0390 and speak to a 211 information specialist between the hours of 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. This program is designed for low- or fixed-income elderly and/or disabled residents who have no other means of completing the raking service.
The deadline for residents to sign up is Oct. 19.
