Volunteers are needed to rake yards on our annual Day of Caring event. This is a great way for families, co-workers, church or school groups to spend time together and help others in the community. We will begin at the Grand Rapids Lions Club at 8 a.m. for a free hot pancake breakfast. All pre-registered volunteers will also receive a free t-shirt. Please pre-register your group at www.uwswac.org to be guaranteed t-shirts.
