2016 Days of Caring

 

As printed in a recent article of our local Citizen Times newspaper, our agency manger, Todd White, along with about 100 other volunteers were actively serving our community during the United Way of Southern Kentucky Days of Caring event. Free bottles of water along with printed information on UWSK's new 2-1-1 network were handed out to community members who visited The CORE, Save-A Lot, and Food Lion. This network is a toll-free telephone call-center staffed weekdays from 8am to 5 pm, and has a database of local and regional human resource services that anyone in need can call.
